International Festival of Architecture and Design “EURASIAN PRIZE” is a unique non-profit project that serves to identify and encourage innovative ideas and solutions.
Eurasian Prize, the international festival of architecture and design, is an annual set of events crowned by the Awards Gala. Nearly 9000 entries have been submitted in the competitive of the Eurasian Prize since 2003. The winners – architects and designers from 35 countries of the world.
I think open architecture and design contests have an important role in showcasing a great variety of designers and projects, and is a democratic way of exposing new talent. The Eurasian Prize will bring perspectives from around the world, and might uncover solutions that are obvious in certain communities but new to other.
I am impressed that the Eurasian Prize strives for socially responsible ideas. Different responses to context & sustainability are studied & projects that are exemplary in these aspects are duly awarded bringing recognition to the architects and more importantly publicizing how good architecture can improve lives and the environment.
It is remarkable that the focus of The Eurasian Prize symposium is on the study of the relationship between architecture and society. Thru this symposium as a platform, architects coming from different countries and regions have opportunities to exchange opinions, and share their views on architecture, and its significance to the society.
It is important to seek, compare and learn from each other, so that architecture can take on the challenges of today. Architecture should act as an activator to lead people from a passive expectation to an involved level of participation and attention. We feel that with such forums as the Eurasian Prize a lot of attention is achieved.
The Eurasian Prize mission to connect international communities of the East and West is particularly appealing to me, as is the recognition of the importance of reclaiming a leading social, public and cultural role for architecture. Such awards can stimulate our profession internationally and encourage the will to become better.
