For many years, the Poznan architectural community has worked to support the development of Wielkopolska architecture, the aestheticization of urban and rural spaces, and the promotion of the best architectural works of the region. This year, the Architectural Award of the Wielkopolska Region - NAWW - was established, which will be awarded annually to the best architectural works in the region.
The purpose of the award is to promote the high quality of architecture of the cultural landscape of Wielkopolska, to draw attention to the creation of a coherent and aesthetic spatial image of the region, as well as to support the development of valuable architectural and urban planning solutions.
