ARCHICAD user wins 2018 Women in Architecture's "Architect of the Year" Award

GRAPHISOFT is proud to announce that The Architectural Review and The Architects' Journal have named Sandra Barclay 2018's "Architect of the Year" for her work on Peru's Museo de Sitio de Paracas, designed by ARCHICAD client Barclay & Crousse. The museum was built on the ruins of its predecessor, which was destroyed by an earthquake in 2007. The judges lauded the building's simplicity and strength in a challenging context. "The architects responded to the lack of context with a design that is both robust and simple, yet powerful, and even its man-made imperfection adds value to the building."

The Architectural Review and The Architects’ Journal are delighted to announce Sandra Barclay as Architect of the Year and Gloria Cabral as the winner of the Moira Gemmill Prize for Emerging Architecture in the 2018 Women in Architecture awards, revealed today.

The Moira Gemmill Prize for Emerging Architecture recognises excellence in design and a bright future for women designers under the age of 45, with an emphasis on achievements and completed projects, while the Architect of the Year award rewards a single recently completed project.
