Urban Development Awards

Detailed competition program for the 2021 Urban Planning category

The Eurasian Prize
In Urban Planning

Environmental awareness has become a trend in the society so influential that it cannot be ignored when building and re-designing urban spaces. The trend dictates its own terms, and urban planners who do not comply are certain to be left behind. In its 16th edition, the Eurasian Prize places special emphasis on sustainability as a huge factor in today’s urban development.

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. 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

The jury will highlight ideas about the future adaptation of city fabric to take account of potential future health hazards.
