The 38th Équerre d’argent awards recognise the achievements of architects and landscape architects in France. The 25 projects nominated, out of 250 candidates, are divided into 5 categories: “housing”, “places of activity”, “culture, youth and sport”, “public spaces and landscaping” and “first work”.

This year’s winners are Irish firm Grafton Architects and Toulouse architects Vigneu & Zilio for the Toulouse School of Economics in Toulouse (Haute-Garonne). In this building, the architects chose to synthesise the specific architectural features of the Pink City. While the vernacular inspiration is expressed in the red brick, other elements such as the bridges and ramps anchor the building even more firmly in local architecture.
