Shelley receives award at Zumtobel in Dornbirn, Austria

The sixth edition of the international architecture prize – with a focus on future-oriented developments to improve the quality of life and sustainability in the built environment – produced three exceptional winning projects, which address collective living, affordable housing and circularity:

The wooden construction La Borda Housing Cooperative by Lacol, an architecture cooperative from Barcelona, Spain, which also won the Emerging Architecture Prize 2022 of the Mies van der Rohe Awards in May, was recognized with the first prize in the category Buildings.

The project Whole Block Outcomes: Rehabilitating Baltimore of the Initiative Black Women Build convinced the jury in the category Urban Developments & Initiatives.

This year’s Special Prize for Innovation went to the Circular Construction Lab of Cornell University, Ithaca, USA, for their RhinoCircular software tool.
