The “Zumtobel Group Award – Innovations for Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment” is an architectural award that acts as a stimulus for new developments and concepts in the built environment that help meet current and future demands for improved urban living conditions and energy needs.
The Urban Developments & Initiatives category, sponsored by Thorn, is dedicated to projects on an urban scale: city development/planning strategies, master plans, public space projects and landscape architecture. It also includes ongoing research projects and social initiatives in an urban context.
The award targets urban developments that are in progress or have been realized in the past three years (30 Nov. 2013 – 15 Jan. 2017) as well as ongoing research into the improved implementation of sustainability and humanity. Aiming not least to encourage an emerging generation of researchers and practitioners in architecture and urban design, the award in this category seeks to facilitate and promote urban projects and to foster ongoing initiatives or socially beneficial research projects. Individuals or groups from university contexts, architects, urban and landscape planners, NGOs and private or public initiatives are eligible.
