Set up in 1982 by the architect Philippe Rotthier, this triennial architectural award is one of the rare prizes rewarding projects that consciously identify with the traditional concept of the town or city as seen through European eyes.
The prize has a twofold objective : on the one hand, to draw attention to contemporary urban architectural works that are often ignored by critics and the specialized press and, on the other hand, to raise the architectural of the public, elected representatives and sponsors. The prize is organized by the Fondation pour l'Architecture which also arranges exhibitions and publications devoted to the winning projects. These are selected by a jury comprising European personalities from the world of art and architecture.
