Vectorworks has announced the winners – 21 projects by 28 students from eight countries – in this year's scholarships for students in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, and entertainment.

Pictured above is Leslie Majer's “Badehaus Breitstrom,” which won the 2020 Richard Diehl Award, the grand prize for the Vectorworks Design Scholarship that is named for the founder of Vectorworks. Majer, now in graduate studies at ETH Zürich, submitted her thesis project from Bauhaus Universität Weimar, the design for a bathhouse on the Gera in Erfurt. 

Rubina Siddiqui from Vectorworks called the project "a true gem," highlighting the graphics achieved by using Vectorworks for drawings and Maxon's Cinema 4D for renderings, but also commending how Majer created space "through the juxtaposition of simple and heavy elements to create something so massive and intricate."

The Diehl Award and other scholarship winners were selected from more than 1,800 submissions. Below is the full list of winners, followed by illustrations of the seven winners in the architecture category. Visit the Vectorworks Scholarship website for more images of the winning designs and glimpses of the runners up.
