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 15th 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:
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:
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.
Athletic, administrative, entertainment, culture, transport, retail, business, medical and all kinds of services facilities.
Science and technology hubs and centers, production facilities, science parks, technological clusters, and environmental research and protection facilities.
Urban objects comprising units of various purpose, such as living, public, retail, recreation, office and administrative use.

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)
