  • Built heritage
    All those architectural interventions, permanent or ephemeral, on architectural assets of patrimonial interest.
  • Exterior spaces
    All those interventions in the historic public space in the area of monuments
    and cultural landscapes.
  • Urban planning

    of Architectural Heritage.
  • Disclosure

    of Architectural Heritage.

The international jury, comprised of a committee of experts with a proven track record in the field of intervention in Architectural Heritage, will be in charge of selecting the winners and finalists of each category, as well as 15 and 10 projects in the categories of Built Heritage and Exterior Spaces, respectively, with the aim of giving visibility to a greater number of works. Furthermore, for the third consecutive year, a Special Mention for Restoration will be given to the work that, from a technical and methodological perspective, stands out for its quality, precision, and respect.
