Architecture Awards

Detailed program for the 2018 Architecture category

The Eurasian Prize
In Architecture

Each historical period re-adjusts the concept of architecture so that it meets current needs of society and responds to growing challenges. Today, the society’s environmental awareness is becoming an ever more influential factor for all fields of human life. In its 14th edition, the Eurasian Prize places special emphasis on sustainable architecture as an ongoing trend, and on sustainability as a core principle of innovation in architecture.

Overall evaluation will be based on the following criteria with their relevance depending on each subcategory:

  • Purpose focus
  • Sustainability
  • Practical utility
  • Construction, operation and maintenance efficiency
  • Social awareness
  • Operational safety
  • Aesthetical contribution
  • Innovative solutions and approach

Sustainability aspects and criteria

The international expert jury will assign extra points to the entries which are built around the three-pronged sustainability concept, including and combining social, environmental and economical aspects of architecture. For this reason, entrants are asked to specify how their projects relate with the following sustainability aspects:

  • use of materials, practices and technologies which meet the requirements of green building by carrying out the project
  • resource-efficiency throughout the building’s life-cycle which includes site selection, laying the groundwork, maintenance, operational effectiveness and demolition scenario
  • use of sustainable construction materials and finishes
  • reduced transport loads through use of building materials from local sources
  • onsite generation of renewable energy through solar power, hydrothermal power, wind power and other
  • use of highly energy-efficient and energy-saving materials

In the Urban Development subcategory, the key criterion is how the project achieves sustainability while building. This implies securing a favorable living environment around the construction area, reducing negative environmental impact, and protection and rational use of natural resources.

Subcategories:

 

Public Architecture

Athletic, administrative, entertainment, culture, transport, retail, business, medical and all kinds of services facilities.

 

Industrial Architecture

Science and technology hubs and centers, production facilities, science parks, technological clusters, and environmental research and protection facilities.

 

Multipurpose Complexes

Urban objects comprising units of various purpose, such as living, public, retail, recreation, office and administrative use.

 

High-Rise Housing

Multi-dwelling units and residential compounds with six floors or more.

 

Low- and Mid-Rise Housing

Multi-dwelling units and residential compounds with less than six floors.

 

Creative Housing

Apartment buildings for temporary stay, providing space and infrastructure for work.

NEW: Innovation For Sustainability

 

The Eurasian Prize in the Innovation For Sustainability category is awarded for materials, technologies and solutions that secure sustainability for architectural projects. This includes two types of entries:

 

Innovative product (Innovative means of construction that are produced using renewable resources, primarily from local sources, and that help reduce negative environmental impact during building. This entry type is for manufacturing companies and trading companies)

 

Innovative solution (Innovative technologies and engineering solutions that improve new and existing objects, increasing their energy efficiency and limiting their impact on the environment. This entry type is for engineers, architectural engineers and engineering companies)
