Jury's Statement

Of the 273 projects submitted from 39 countries, a unanimous decision was reached for two projects from the field of architecture and four projects from the field of fine arts, as well as a total of three substitute projects.

The decisive criterion in selecting the projects lay in the combination of aesthetic complexity and intellectual precision. Local aspects in the context of Los Angeles are developed by the chosen scholarship winners in connection with global developments and debates at the intersection of fine art, architecture, and public space. Modernism in the sense of Rudolph M. Schindler is correlated with historical and contemporary international movements and thereby decentralized; a critical eye is cast on political parameters with immediate impacts on society.

Submissions that did not feature the specific project proposal stipulated in the call for applications or that did not meet other requirements were not taken into considera-tion for a scholarship.
