“Graduation Projects that converse with the world, Graduation is not the end but the new chapter”. TEAM20 focuses on the graduation projects and aim to give students a platform for their unique voices in terms of architecture, urban and rural development, built environment issues and in general, man-land relationship. Graduation projects can be seen as architecture graduates’ accumulation of efforts throughout their academic years. The process involves deciding the topic, choosing base, investigation to proposing a solution; students have to overcome many obstacles to complete the project. This is why graduation project will always hold a special place in all architecture people’s hearts.

Started out in 2013 and will be celebrating our 8th year, this event encourages exchange between architecture and planning sectors as well as students’ self-expression. Due to covid-19, we have decided to hold the even online this year. Hosting online also means a great opportunity for us to expand our scope of participants in the other countries and this can elevate the quality and quantity of interactions in the architecture and planning field. In other words, 2020 will be a greater stage for all graduate students to present their graduation projects.


For considerations of fairness and profoundness of each jury viewing, we have divided the competition into two different groups. One is the “Architecture Design”, and the other one is the “Urban Planning”. Participants can decide the groups they want to be competing in, no matter what their major is. Participants can only register for one group, and no alternation is allowed after registration.

Division Details:
. Architecture Design
Designs that focus on the architecture itself, the space and the structure
. Urban Planning

Designs that deal with relationships among neighborhoods, communities, land uses and urban and rural areas


  1. Participants must be a 2020 undergraduate of the architecture and planning related fields. Each post-secondary institution is only allowed to submit 2 graduation projects per category. (meaning 2 for architecture designs and 2 for urban planning, a sum total of 4 submissions)

  2. The submitted work must be a graduation project of 2020, and we accept both individual and group projects (in the case of a group project, only one representative is required to register on behalf of the group), each project can be only registered once.

  3. Registration for competing groups (Architecture Design/Urban Planning) depends on the graduation project content and can’t be changed after registration.

★  Projects recommended from post-secondary institutions will have the priority to be accepted. When recommending, please register through the exclusive recommendation link provided to each institution departments. If the participant wishes to register without a recommendation, the registration and submission can be done directly from our website.
★  We only accept maximum 4 projects per institution (2 from Architecture Designs, and 2 from Urban Planning). When the total projects received hits the limitation, the ones recommended by the institution will have the priority in submission acceptance.
