Almost 30 experts, divided into 4 juries, examined the finalist case studies and debated to reach a common decision about the most inspiring buildings, districts, and infrastructures. Their criteria? Innovation and energy performance of course, but also the cost and the replicability of the projects. The jurors paid a great attention to the message sent to the market, as the winners of the contest should help to prove professionals that new ways of building and refurbishing are possible. Thanks to the jurors from all over the world for their commitment!
