The Global Award, created by the architect and scholar Jana Revedin in 2006, every year rewards five architects who contribute to a more equitable and sustainable development and build an innovative and participatory approach to meet the needs of societies, whether they are experts in eco-construction or self-development actors for whom sustainability is synonymous with social and urban equity. The originality of the prize is to federate them in a unifying scene, enriching the global debate. Attentive to emerging scenes, interdisciplinarity and experimental learning, the Global Award is recognized as a discoverer of 21st century architects: Wang Shu, Alejandro Aravena, Carin Smuts, Francis Kéré, Al Borde, Assemble, Rotor, Bijoy Jain or Marta Maccaglia.

At the Centenary of Walter Gropius’ Bauhaus, the Global Award 2019 honors the multidisciplinary and social-reformatory aim of the Bauhaus: "Architecture is science, art and crafts at the service of society."

Laureates 2019 :
The Global Award scientific jury honors for their groundbreaking approaches:
-Ammar Khammash, Jordan, for a multi-disciplinary practice rooted in geography, geology, anthropoly and art,
-Werner Sobek, director of ILEK, Germany, successor to legendary Frei Otto, for the "research of the limits" by lightness, in structures, materials and techniques,
-Rozana Montiel, Mexico, for the research of simple, but refined experimental spaces for a public appropriation in the field of mass social housing,
-Jorge Lobo, Chile, Danmark, for the combination of cultural approach and "right-tech" concepts for emergency architecture,
-Ersen Gürsel, Turkey, for the fight and teaching for social inclusion in urban and economic development, as an embodiment of the legacy of the Bauhaus at Mimar Sinan University.

The Symposium 2019 will be followed by a presentation of the books:
