L'Atelier Senzu’s founding duo has received one of the 14 awards in the architecture category of the AJAP - Albums des jeunes architectes et paysagistes, a biennial competition organised by the French Ministry of Culture that recognises young architects and landscape architects, in Europe, under 35, who have carried out a project or entered a competition in France.
An exhibition curated by the architect and journalist Cyrille Véran presents in Paris 19 works by the group of ‘jeunes architectes et paysagistes’ who received this award, at the Galerie d'Architecture Moderne et Contemporaine, between October 15, 2021 and November 14, 2021.

The competition jury for 2020, who gathered on January 14 and 15, 2021 chaired by the Minister of Culture, was co-chaired by landscape architect Jacqueline Osty, Grand Prix National du Paysage 2018 and Grand Prix National de l' Urbanisme 2020, and by architect Pierre-Louis Faloci, Grand Prix National de l'Architecture 2019.
Created in 1980 and developed with the support of Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine, the AJAP competition aims to identify and acknowledge young talents who stand out for their capacity in architectural design and innovation, for the execution quality of their projects, and for their commitment to social issues. This award has given particular relevance to practices alert to the issue of addressing ecological transition by integrating the reuse of pre-existences.
The award will be a boost for the future career of this studio which the Triennale has chosen to develop the exhibition design for Chronic Conditions: Body and Building. Conceived by Anne Ulrikke Andersen, the exhibition is on at Palácio Sinel de Cordes from October 14 to December 11, 2021.
