The set of proposals is then made available to the jury, which selects the list of finalists and the winning practice. The award received 95 applications from across the globe.

The shortlist of ten architecture firms, included Indian architecture practice, RC Architects. RC Architects’ work was also featured in Future Trajectories | Promising Architectural Practices of India

The international jury responsible for this selection highlighted that

“If the début projects of any architect indicate their future path, from the ten Début practices shortlisted it is possible to imagine the future work of an entire generation. There is much that can be learned from these young architects, hailing from different continents, about emerging standpoints on sustainability, social equity and community inclusiveness. The Début finalists prove once again what architecture can do, but, more importantly, what it should do in the present and at the service of our time.”
