MediaArchitectural Biennale Student Awards

The Media Architecture Biennale 2020 (MAB20) invited students to send in their projects for the MAB Student Awards. The MAB20 especially encouraged submissions that addressed the theme of ‘Futures Implied’ and demonstrated the implications of media technologies for urban development, the design of public spaces, and the well-being of the ecosystem at large.

The MAB received over 100 submissions from all over the world. Four MediaArchitecture student projects are nominated for the MAB20 Student Award. The nominees are selected from an international jury.
