The International VELUX Award 2006 for Students of Architecture announced and celebrated the twenty winners at the award event at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao on 23 October.

The International VELUX Award wants to discuss, stimulate and re-think daylight in architecture as a crucial and primary aspect of building design. The overall award theme is "Light of tomorrow", and the award wants to celebrate and promote excellence in completed study works acknowledging students as well as their tutors.

The award received 2,037 registrations for the 2006 Award representing 496 schools in 92 countries. Out of these, 557 students representing 225 schools in 53 countries submitted their projects for the jury’s review.

The international jury chose to nominate three winners and 17 honourable mentions. The winners and their projects are described in more detail here.

The international jury noted the remarkable variation of ideas and approaches related to the theme "Light of Tomorrow" expressed in the many projects from all over the world. The jury concluded that the projects represent a multiplicity of directions and concerns in contemporary architecture. However, independent of the changing attitudes light continues to play an important spatial role as a common denominator and as an inspiration.

- The general trend is to go towards artificial light. Even so, people are starting to notice the value of natural light, said jury member Kengo Kuma from Japan.

- We saw that there were Northern European or colder climates which are about introducing light, and the warmer climates, which are more about creating shadow, said jury member Róisín Heneghan from Ireland.

The International VELUX Award for Students of Architecture takes place every second year, next time in 2008.
