Together the seven jurors make a truly global group, all of whom have lived, studied and worked in different countries throughout the world, all active in projects worldwide, several teaching or lecturing at schools of architecture.

“We are happy to present a distinguished jury that represents many different geographies, cultures and ways of approaching architecture and daylighting,” says VELUX project manager Anne-Marie Hasselbalch: “The broad constellation of the jury promises well for the evaluation of the projects that come from the entire globe, representing many different backgrounds and viewpoints.”

The Jurors’ works are remarkably diverse and encompass projects ranging from industrial design to virtual museums and airports. Their individual backgrounds also speak to their diverse interests and inspirations.
