Presentation of the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture™ 2021 and lectures by the 5 winners.
The Global Award, created by architect and professor Jana Revedin in 2006, rewards each year five architects who contribute to a more equitable and sustainable development and build an innovative and participative approach to meet the needs of societies, whether they are experts in eco-construction or actors of self-development for whom sustainability is above all synonymous with social and urban equity. The originality of the prize is to bring them together on a federating stage, to enrich the global debate. Attentive to emerging scenes, interdisciplinarity and experimentation, the Global Award is recognized as a discoverer of the architects of the 21st century: Wang Shu, Alejandro Aravena, Carin Smuts, Francis Kéré, Al Borde, Assemble, Rotor, Bijoy Jain or Marta Maccaglia.
The theme of the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture™ 2021 is « Architecture and nature: a new synergy? ».
The winners are: Teresa Moller, Teresa Moller Landscape Studio, Santiago, Chile; Solano Benitez & Gloria Cabral, Gabinete de Arquitetura Benitez & Cabral, Asuncion, Paraguay; Severiano Porto, Manaus, Brazil, presented by Marcos Cereto, professor at the Federal University of Amazonas; José Cubilla, Asuncion, Paraguay; Richard Sennett, sociologist, historian, New-York & London.
Due to health constraints, the 2021 symposium is postponed to January 2022.
Since 2010, the award has been placed under the patronage of UNESCO.
