It is my own pleasure to contact you in order to let you know the members of the International Jury for the 2016 European Prize for Urban Public Space met at the Centre of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB) on 28 and 29 April to decide the results of this year’s award.
From a total of 276 entries, the Jury selected 25 finalists. Two of these entries were awarded a joint First Prize and four others were selected for Special Mentions but they will not be revealed until 4 July when they will be announced at the prize-giving ceremony which is to be held at the CCCB and live broadcast by streaming.
All the finalists will subsequently be shown in an itinerant exhibition which will travel around European cities and elsewhere during the next two years in order to present the results of the Prize.
We should like to take this occasion to congratulate the authors and promoters of the finalists and to express our gratitude to everyone who presented projects.
