ABOUT THE PRIX VERSAILLES

Architecture and intelligent sustainability

Announced each year at UNESCO since 2015, the Prix Versailles is a series of architectural competitions that shine a light on the finest contemporary projects worldwide.

At the intersection between multiple disciplines, the members of the Prix Versailles World Jury are tasked with awarding twenty-four World Titles from among the Selected Sites – in the categories of Airports, Campuses, Passenger Stations, Sports, Museums, Emporiums, Hotels and Restaurants.

The Official List – which pays tribute to innovation, creativity, reflections of local heritage, ecological efficiency and the values of social interaction and participation, which the United Nations holds in high regard – is in line with the principles of intelligent sustainability, taking the projects’ ecological, social and cultural impacts into consideration.

“Dialogue and interconnections between the different aspects of the human environment – from ecology to social relations to culture – pave the way for intelligent sustainable development.
More than a mere goal, this offers a wonderful promise of the ability to meet the latest challenges facing the world today.”

Jérôme Gouadain
Secretary General of Prix Versailles
