Entries are now open for the European Prize for Urban Public Space
The biennial competition, administered by the Centre of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona, had been running since 2000. Its aim is to promote democratic public space in European cities.
In 2010, more than 300 projects were entered. The joint winners were the Open-Air-Library in the German city of Magdeburg, and the public roof garden of the Oslo Opera House in Norway.
Works that have created, recovered or improved public space in the years 2010 and 2011 are eligible for the prize. For information on how to enter, please visit the Public Space website. Deadline for entries is 19 January, 2012.
