The projects were selected by the Jury to represent new models and points of reference for local city policies. They address new management models based on community and circular processes of sustainability. “The quality of the built environment and the need to take care of its development needs to be communicated in a very broad way: to the public, of course, but also to decision-makers,” says Jury member, journalist and curator Francesca Ferguson. “More than ever there is a need to convey how we want to live in our cities and discuss it with decision-makers in a transdisciplinary way that includes the civic engagement of society and those involved in community design and thinking.”

The final award ceremony will take place on 12 May 2022 in the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona, while the winner of the Emerging Architecture Prize will be announced at the end of April.
