Het CCCB kondigt een nieuwe editie van de European Prize for Urban Public Space aan.
The European Prize for Urban Public Space is an initiative of the Center of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB) which, since 2000 and on a biennial basis, recognizes the best interventions of creation and transformation in the public spaces of European cities.
The Prize has an honorary nature, is awarded jointly to the authors and promoters of works carried out in the 47 countries that make up the Council of Europe and gives the maximum dissemination to the selected works through the network of European collaborators and partners of the project.
The Prize offers a unique perspective on European cities and aims to become a space of reference to discuss the challenges of urban public space, in collaboration with experts and architectural, academic, and cultural institutions from all over the European territory.
In this year’s award, the Prize has two distinct categories.
The general category aims to evaluate interventions in public space which took place between 2022 and 2023 with the exception of projects related with transformation of seafronts.
Presentation for the Prize is open and free of charge, and the procedure consists of two rounds. In the first round, the Jury will select 25 works to be published on the Prize website and included in its online archive. Five finalists, selected from these 25 projects, will continue to the second round.
In the second round, the Jury will consider the finalist works in accordance with the terms and conditions set out herewith. As a result of this second round, the Jury will name the winner of this category.
Given the challenges faced by cities that are open to the sea as a consequence of the climate change, this category aims to assess projects of transforming, recovering, and creating seafronts over the last five years, from 2019 to 2023 inclusive.
Presentation for the Prize is open and free of charge, and the procedure consists of two rounds. In the first round, the Jury will select 5 finalists in this category. These will be published on the Prize website and will be included in its online archive.
In the second round, the Jury will name the winner of this category.
