Ethical Architecture Award
Ethical Architecture Award is the project geared toward supporting and rewarding an ethical approach to architecture and design
In a world where the gap in the distribution of resources is dramatically widening, where social issues multiply on a daily basis, there is an urgent need to promote a culture for human beings, their rights and dignity.
Architecture is one of the main disciplines that can favor wellbeing and social equity by giving identity to places and providing human beings with services and beauty.
Therefore, to reaffirm the culture of an ethical and social architecture- namely an architecture for the human being- “Ethical Architecture Award” was established.
Ethical Architecture Award is Dynamo’s and Yac’s project aiming at supporting and awarding an ethical approach to architecture and design in order to honor young people and professionals whose work favors the human and social dimension of architecture.
The competition comprises 2 categories
Whatever the selected category, the competition requires the submission of particularly valuable social projects or projects with a positive impact on the communities they were designed for.
Built architectures with no scale or geographical location restrictions, built by the submission deadline (07 May 2023).
Imagined projects, including the ones that have been submitted (regardless of the outcome) to other competitions.
Whatever the selected category, the competition requires the submission of particularly valuable social projects or projects with a positive impact on the communities they were designed for, for example:
Architectures of suburban redevelopment or socially complex contexts
Architecture in emerging countries
Architectures for education and culture
Particularly valuable installations or buildings for the topics of the competition
Redevelopments, interventions to return decommissioned assets to the community
With two Pritzker Prizes and some of the international stars of architecture for social purposes, the jury of the first edition is a panel of absolute excellence.
