Call for Projects: The Urban Intervention Award Berlin 2013

The Urban Intervention Award Berlin is intended to bring to the public eye interventions in urban space which contribute substantially to newly defining, revitalising and valorising inner-city neighbourhoods. This can be the case with the transformation and conversion of old buildings as well as with new construction, temporary buildings and installations in the urban space. It is not a matter of achieving architectural effects or an expressive design vocabulary, but of architecture as a stimulator of processes which contribute to transforming a location.

The prizes will be given to outstanding realised projects which are examples of excellent architecture in conjunction with new innovative concepts of use and/or conversion, and which were developed through cooperation between partners coming from varying fields and disciplines.

In order for a project to be entered for the Urban Intervention Award Berlin 2013, it must have been realised in Europe within the past five years. Projects which were already entered in 2010 cannot be entered again.

The Urban Intervention Award Berlin is composed of two categories:
  • Built - a realised construction project
  • Temporary - a realised temporary project
In both categories, information must be provided about:
  • the urban and spatial approach
  • the sociocultural and societal context
  • design aspects
  • the use concept
  • the cooperation between project partners.
In addition, we require a description of the stimuli the proposed project provides for the development of the urban environment.
