The Unfair Architect Award is an architecture award and competition for the exhibition design of Unfair.


Via our Open Call, we invite upcoming architects for the unique opportunity to conceptualize an exhibition design. The winner of the Award will be commissioned to develop and execute their design as the setting for the exhibition fair. Unfair aims to create a fusion between an exhibition and art fair format. The design reflects a new way of experiencing art fairs, in which the adventurous, exciting thrill of visiting large scale exhibitions is combined with the 40 individual presentations of the participating artists.
