Global Award for Sustainable Architecture
Each year, the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture™ recognises five architects who share the principles of sustainable development and a participatory architectural approach to the needs of societies in both the Global North and the Global South.
The Global Award for Sustainable Architecture was created in 2006 by architect and researcher Jana Revedin, in partnership with the Cité de l'Architecture & du Patrimoine and the member institutions of its scientific committee.
The work carried out since 2006 has ensured the undeniable international recognition of the Global Award, proving its scientific independence and bringing the laureates together in a community at the forefront of research and experimentation.
The Global Award for Sustainable Architecture was placed under the patronage of UNESCO in 2010.
The scientific jury is chaired by Jana Revedin, Founding President of the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture.
The Cité de l'architecture & du patrimoine organizes the Award, ensures its cultural promotion and promotes the work of architects and their contribution to the global debate.
The scientific jury of the Global Award is composed of :
- Jana Revedin, Founding President of the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture, Venice
- Benno Albrecht, IUAV University, Venice
- Marie-Hélène Contal, Cité de l'Architecture & du Patrimoine, Paris
- Spela Hudnik, International Architecture Biennale, Ljubljana
- Deniz İncedayı, Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Istanbul
The Global Award Community
The Global Award Community, in 2022, brings together 70 laureates, architects and transdisciplinary experts, who share the ethics of sustainable development and form a global network of research, experimentation and transmission in the fields of architecture, urban renewal and academic social responsibility. Architecture is defined as a key player in the emancipation of societies and the control of their development.
