The ARVHA, Association for Research on the City and Housing, launched the tenth edition of the “Women Architects Prize” in 2022 with the support of the Ile de France Region, the National Council of the Order of Architects, the Pavilion of the Arsenal and the city of Paris. For the 2022 Prize, ARVHA also receives the support of BNP PARIBAS Real Estate, Ciments Calcia, Unibail Rodamco, and COGEDIM as well as Batiactu, TEMA and the architect’s journal. This prize aims to highlight the works and careers of women architects, so that young women architects can draw inspiration from existing female models, and to encourage parity in a highly male-dominated profession.
In 2022, 350 applications were examined and presented 1,270 projects. In 2022, four prizes were awarded and two mentions for:
Award-winning female architect for her completed projects – 3 to 5 works built, and a special mention
