The European Prize for Urban Public space, created in 2000, is a biannual event organized to recognise and encourage the creation, recovery and improvement of public space, seen as a clear indicator of the civic and collective health of our cities. With the emphasis on European integration, the Prize aspires to chart the major concerns of Europeĺs cities. To this end, the European Archive of Urban Public Space ( has selected 451 interventions in 295 European cities that have been submitted over the years and made them available for public consultation.

The seventh Prize will be presided over by the architect Josep LlinÓs, following on from Rafael Moneo (2010), Manuel de SolÓ-Morales (2008) and ElÝas Torres (2006).
