European Prize for Urban Public Space

The European Prize for Urban Public Space is a biennial competition that is presently organised by the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona, the Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine, the Netherlands Architecture Institute, The Architecturzentrum Wien, The Architecture Foundation and the Museum of Finish Architecture in order to recognize and encourage aimed at recovering and creating spaces of cohesion in cities.

Spirit of the prize
The spirit of the Prize is to recognise, highlight and make known the most significant projects of creating or redesigning public space in Europe. This is an honorary Prize and is awarded jointly to the institution that has initiated the project and the author(s) of the work.

The winning projects, the finalists and a selection of the best projects that have presented for the Prize will subsequently form part of the European Archive of Urban Public Space, a collection of the most outstanding interventions that have been presented for the Prize since it was first awarded. They are all accessible to the public on the Archive website.

In gallery 3 of the NAI a selection of the latest edition of the prize will be shown.
