KRob Competition 2011 - The winners are in!
Posted: Friday, November 18, 2011 |

Eleven winners and eighteen finalists were announced this week at KRob 2011, the international Ken Roberts Architectural Delineation, Drawing and Illustration Competition. The prestigious contest is the longest running architectural drawing competition currently in operation anywhere in the world, hosted annually by the AIA Dallas chapter, and has come a long way in its 37-year history: what began in 1973 as a competition for architectural hand renderings and illustrations from the northwest Texas region, steadily grew into an important national event, and later opened up also to international entries and inclusion of digital media via online submission. This year, KRob's popularity reached its highest level yet with nearly four hundred submissions from twelve countries, divided in student and professional categories.

Together with fellow jurors, Julie VandenBerg Snow of Julie Snow Architects and Kevin Sloan of Kevin Sloan Studio, I had the great pleasure to also serve on this year's judging panel as part of the long-standing partnership between the KRob competition and Bustler & Archinect.

Looking through the impressive number of entries, we were struck by the range of submitted work: quick notebook sketches, meticulous hand drawings, analytical collages, photo-realistic computer renderings, and any conceivable hybrid media in between. Jury deliberations took all day, and the winning entries were officially announced later that evening at a presentation at the Dallas Museum of Art. The presentation preceded a lecture by Julie Snow as part of the Dallas Architecture Forum's 2011 lecture series.

All winners and finalists will be part of an exhibition at the Dallas Center for Architecture from January 10 through February 24.

Following here are the Ken Roberts competition winners of 2011.

Was the whole jury from the University of Nebraska? Come on - Those drawings are fairly nice but go back and look at some of the Bartlett student work from first year and tell me which is more rigorous. I am offended by those 3 selections because I know there are thousands of better student renderings out there. Look back at the winners form the years before. Politics - Politics - Politics

The Perry Kulper drawing and the Brent Lobstein (an actual amazing student rendering) are definitely my choices. Rigor - Rigor - Rigor - Not just a few bold red thick lines but actual thought and time.
