Urban Intervention Award Berlin 2013
The goal of the Urban Intervention Award Berlin is to contribute significantly to the improvement of the quality of life in the urban environment and to stimulate processes of urban cooperation. The Urban Intervention Award is composed of two categories: Build (a realised building project) and Temporary (a realised temporary project). The prize recognises exemplary projects that contribute substantially to newly definin g, revitalising and upgrading inner-city neighbourhoods. The transformation and conversion of existing structures, new build and temporary projects are all valid for entry.

Urban Living Award 2013
The Urban Living Award 2013 recognises outstanding realised projects which are examples of excellent architecture in the area of forward-looking, integrative models for housing and living 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. We are interested in both housing-specific topics, such as accessibility, multi-generation homes and participation, and in topics related to connecting residential projects with such partners in the urban environment as childcare, schools and nursing homes.
