Each year, the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture rewards five architects who share the ethics of a more sustainable development and have built an innovative approach where they work, in the West as in emerging countries, in developed cities as in precarious districts, in megacities as in territories.
The Global Award for Sustainable Architecture™ was created in 2006 by architect and researcher Jana Revedin, to support the debate on architecture and the city in the era of major transitions, with the Cité de l'architecture & du patrimoine as a cultural partner and the support of its international scientific committee. In 2010 it received Unesco's patronage.
Since its creation, 55 architects have been awarded, from the great pioneers to the young rebels of the world scene. The Global Award Community brings together these highly relevant architects to stimulate the exchange of knowledge and experience.
