We met today the five finalists of the 11th edition of the Architecture Prize organized by Polityka weekly. Who is likely to win the Grand Prix of the competition this year?
TheArchitectural Award is a distinction through which the editors of the weekly want to show and promote people-friendly realizations that improve the aesthetics of the environment. Every year, a group invited by the organizers, including the editors of A&B, indicates interesting objects - architectural realizations, urban planning solutions and examples of art in public space - realized in the preceding year of the plebiscite. In this way, four realizations are selected for the finals. The fifth is indicated by the editors of "Polityka". The results of last year's edition can be found here.
From among the five finalists, the jury will choose the Grand Prix winner in June, and Internet users will also be able to cast their votes - the final five projects can be voted for from April 13-24 at polityka.pl/architektura.
