With 1,305 projects submitted, 44 winners, 49 runner-ups and 61 special mentions have been selected in the Europan 13 competition. Held annually, Europan is a European competition to design urban and architectural projects for implementation. Europan 13 was done in partnership with governing bodies of cities across Europe in collaboration with 15 European structures, under the theme “The Adaptable City: Self-Organization – Sharing - Project”, with participants called on to address the economic and ecological issues of sustainability in European cities.
The 93 awarded teams came from 23 different countries, with half of the entries based outside of the team’s country of residence, demonstrating a willingness by young professionals to work in unfamiliar contexts. In addition to prizes of €12,000 and €6,000 for winners and runner-ups, respectively, winning projects will be undertaken by the participating municipalities and considered for study and/or implementation. An exhibition of all winning projects will be set up in Fall 2016, to which all winning teams will be invited.
