Winning projects demonstrate a thorough understanding of the place, sound technical achievement and outstanding sustainability impact.
Eligible projects must have been completed within the last 10 years. Houses, commercial and institutional buildings, historic towns and villages, archaeological sites and cultural landscapes, for example, are all suitable for entry.
Winners will be announced in the following categories: “Award of Excellence”, “Award of Distinction”, “Award of Merit”, “Award for New Design in Heritage Contexts”, and “Special Recognition for Sustainable Development”. The “Special Recognition for Sustainable Development” and an updated set of Awards Criteria were introduced to acknowledge more prominently the role and contribution of cultural heritage to sustainable development within the broader framework of Agenda 2030.
