Fundacion Metropoli Cities Awards for Excellence highlight the strategic importance of cities and regions, and recognize the “world class” achievements made by individuals, institutions, or cities in advancing the field of urbanism. The award aspires to be the one of the highest distinction that can be internationally awarded in the field of urban planning. The prestige of the award is not derived from its economic value, but rather from the rigor, neutrality, and the capacity of the institutions that make up the Proyecto Cities initiative to identify innovative projects.
The Cities Award seeks to identify and internationally disseminate the most relevant and innovative contributions in the fields of urbanism, city and regional planning. The candidates for the award will be individuals, institutions, cities, or regions that have made significant contributions to the world of cities, and whose work can be considered as a world-class international reference. The award aspires to identify and celebrate those contributions that are singular, relevant, and internationally recognisable as world-class references for their contribution to, and improvement of, our collective efforts in the field of cities and regions.
