I was very impressed that during the award ceremony a lot of young architects and designers came on the stage. And most of them are from Russia. That is, there is a very strong and active architectural community. Among the winners were many women. This is amazing! In addition, the competition has a very attractive geographical location. I would even say – unique! This is the border of Europe and Asia. This means that in the future this forum can become an architectural bridge between the two continents, between the architectural communities from Europe and Asia. And there will be an exchange of experience and knowledge, which will eventually give a new fusion of architecture.
We learned about the forum on the portal archdaily.com ahhh! We found the concept of the contest very interesting and decided to send our works. We decided to take part, because the jury was international, in its ranks were reputable architects. For us it was important that specialists of such a high level evaluated our work. We are happy with the holding, so many people, so many contacts, and a lot of interesting information.
When I found out that my project won the competition, I really wanted to come here. And everything that happens here is amazing to me: a warm welcome, interesting interlocutors, and a very rich business program. I am sure that both the forum and the competition have become important events. Thanks to these events, we learned that there is a region of the Urals and a city of Yekaterinburg on the border of Europe and Asia.
It has been a pleasure to be awarded and taking part at this event. The variety of events, exhibitions make this destination an epicenter for exchanging and building up an important knowledge and awareness to issues that are shared by all of us. Dialogue is crucial and having a platform of experts is necessary. There are multiple topics to be discussed potentially through a strategic project involving local and international stakeholders.
This is no coincidence that an event like this is held in Yekaterinburg. Thanks to the city’s situation on the borderline of Europe and Asia, it has always been open and friendly to cultural influences from both East and West.
The Eurasian Prize is an opportunity to show your work to the demanding professional community and wide general audience. What I also find special is the Festival’s location, Ural. The nature of the region has an inexhaustible aesthetic potential, providing all necessary means to create beautiful landscapes resistant to environmental effect.
I participate in every season of the Eurasian Prize, have been awarded several times. I like the awards program, the structure, and especially the transparency and fairness of judging achieved through anonymousness of entries as presented to the jury. As an author, I participate to test my skill and get independent estimation from the international jury.
Architecture students from Yekaterinburg continue to amaze! If our generation were capable of designing such astonishing projects and demonstrating them the same way, Zaha Hadid would have faced a stiff competition! but now the Ural students are coming. I would like to thank the organizing committee for such a useful and interesting initiative and wish the Eurasian Prize prosperity for the years ahead!
I’m delighted to celebrate the success of a German architect at the Eurasian Prize who has taken the first place in the Public Architecture category. Many advanced and promising projects have been demonstrated by the contestants. I especially marked the daring of the younger generation of architects and designers. I hope that the ties in architecture and design between Russia and Germany will be further strengthened and collaborations in this field will be fruitful.
The Eurasian Prize is an outstanding initiative that gives a boost to your imagination and expands your perspective! Our project that has taken the third place was designed for a real client but with a focus on the competition. We’re delighted to know that our work has been recognized by the jury. Our studio thanks the organizing committee and wishes prosperity to the Eurasian Prize!

The Eurasian Prize is, regardless of the slightly dramatic name, has a very loyal program open to everyone. The international jury grants recognition to both experienced professionals and students. The high-profile jury is a factor that have convinced us to submit our works for the second time -- to win the award! Thanks to everyone working to make this possible!
I was a strict judge, because I believe that only the best deserve such a high award. Sometimes it was hard for me to evaluate this or that project, but I had a chance to see several truly remarkable works. Being on the jury board of the Eurasian Prize was also a reason why I decided to visit Yekaterinburg, which was an opportunity to get another perspective of Russian culture.
I’m very pleased to know that the jury has granted recognition to our work. Friendly and relaxed, the atmosphere at the official ceremony was at the same time solemn and professional with a series of compliments exchanged by the members of the community. It was a true celebration of architecture and design! The organizing committee showed creative approach with statuettes, certificates and overall style of the Eurasian Prize! I’m very thankful, and I’m going to submit new works for the seasons ahead!
The presence of top regional officials in architecture and design at the awards ceremony showed the significance of the event for the region. I was glad to meet colleagues from other cities and countries. Another great thing about the initiative is that it gives an opportunity for emerging talents to see how their work compares to experienced professionals. I wish the Eurasian Prize further geographical expansion and ever growing variety of entries.
The awards gala was an impressive demonstration of a plethora of wonderful original projects. Participation in such a competition means a lot to me. It motivates me to work harder creating memorable projects. The Eurasian Prize opens up new horizons to young architects, boosting their creativity.
The annual Eurasian Prize demonstrates the power and immortality of our precious art.

I’m thankful to the Eurasian Prize organizing committee for their responsiveness and professional approach. Participating in the contest motivated me to improve and allowed me to gain professional experience. The Eurasian Prize has expanded my perspective.

I estimated all of the entries, some works were really noteworthy, and was glad to visit Yekaterinburg for the awards ceremony. The city impressed me a lot, and I’m happy to have had a chance to hand the award to the young architects who are now learning to fly. It was obvious that the organizing committee had put a lot of effort in arranging the competition and the awards gala. Everything was done perfectly, me and my spouse enjoyed our visit.
I spent several days viewing entries. I saw an amazing variety of styles and approaches, some really stunning works. One project I pointed out is a loft bar and gallery, a great example of eclectics and variety of finishings and decoration. Another one is a public object, including green zones, chill-out zones, venues and other elements. I especially want to thank those who are focusing on creating nature-friendly projects. I wish all contestants inexhaustible inspiration and creativity!
