Vectorworks is proud to support innovative young designers and honor the creative visionaries who have paved the way for their success; that’s why we’re sponsoring the Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA), organized by the Fundacío Mies van der Rohe. European institutions of higher education have until July 29, 2016 to recognize their architecture, urban planning, and landscape design students by registering and nominating their best projects from the 2015-2016 academic year.
