European Prize for Urban Public Space | call for entries
The European Prize for Urban Public Space is a biennial competition that aims to recognise and encourage the creation, recovery and improvement of public space in the understanding that the state of public space is a clear indicator of the civic and collective health of our cities.
The European Prize for Urban Public Space welcomes the submission of major projects of creating and remodelling public spaces that have been completed in Europe between 2010 and 2011.
