The Blue Award 2012 is making its second appearance as an anonymous, international, single-phase competition, and is intended for students of architecture, regional planning and urbanism. 163 projects from 86 faculties and architecture schools spread across 49 countries were submitted for the first edition, Blue Award 09.
"Sustainable architecture is neither a question of style nor of technical solutions. Sustainable architecture can be described as a responsible approach towards the task of building." explains Françoise-Hélène Jourda, Architect and Initiator Blue Award. "...it is in the future projects of current students in architecture and planning where the nucleus of a revised and respectful attitude and architectural approach towards our environment will be found."Kick Off Event of May 31, 2011
