The international jury of the European for Urban Public Space, which met at the CCCB on 18 and 19 April, has selected the 25 finalist projects for this year’s award. Representing the best public space interventions in European cities in 2016 and 2017, these works are among the 279 candidates coming from 32 countries. The Prize recognises the creation, recovery and improvement of public spaces, and understands their state as a clear indicator of the democratic health of our cities.

This year’s jury, chaired by the architect Olga Tarrasó, representing the CCCB, consisted of Matevž Čelik, director of the Museum of Architecture and Design of Ljubljana; Hans Ibelings, Dutch historian and architecture critic; Ewa P. Porebska, Warsaw-based architect and editor-in-chief of the magazine Architektura-murator; Francis Rambert, director of La Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine in Paris; Peter Cachola Schmal, director of the Deutsches Architekturmuseum in Frankfurt; Katharina Ritter, representing the Architekturzentrum Wien (Vienna); and Ellis Woodman, director of The Architecture Foundation, London.

The final decision of the Jury will be made public at the awards ceremony which is to be held at the CCCB on 20 June. The 25 finalist projects will be published in the online Archive, which brings together the best projects that have been presented since the Prize was inaugurated in 2000.
