10th European Prize for Urban Public Space 2018

Call for Entries

The Centre of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB), Spain has announced the 10th European Prize for Urban Public Space, a biennial initiative which seeks to promote and recognise projects that create, transform and improve public space in Europe. The Prize is organised by the CCCB along with the Architecture Foundation (London), Architekturzentrum Wien (Vienna), the Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine (Paris), the Museum of Finnish Architecture (Helsinki), the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (Frankfurt) and the Museum of Architecture and Design (Ljubljana).

The Prize aims to promote an open, compact model of the city, ensuring harmonious coexistence of citizens, mixed uses, sustainable mobility for inhabitants and citizen participation in the design of shared spaces. Over its ten awards, the Prize has remained true to the goal of promoting this identity which is based precisely on the social, cultural, economic and historical significance of public space. The most outstanding among all these public space initiatives since the inception of the Prize have been collected in the European Archive of Urban Public Space, which now contains more than 300 projects from all over Europe. Over time, the Prize has come to constitute a window into the transformation of public spaces in Europe.

The call is open from 15 January to 21 February 2018.

Further information concerning the Prize may be found at www.publicspace.org/en. A press release and graphic materials for communication purposes are available at: publicspace.org/en/prize/press/2018
