The CCCB is announcing the call for the eleventh European Prize for Urban Public Space, which recognises the best creation and transformation interventions in the public spaces of European cities. This year’s award will cover works carried out between 2018 and 2021.

In times like the present, when cities around the world are facing new challenges—climate-related, technological and social—the value of public space is perhaps more significant than ever before. Accordingly, the European Prize for Urban Public Space aims to recognise and make known a wide array of works creating, recovering, and improving public space in European cities.

The Prize will be offered again this year after the interruption because of the pandemic. The Prize involves the cooperation of various European institutions that make up its Advisory Committee, as well as a Board of Experts consisting of specialists from around Europe who guarantee wide-ranging geographic cover and the quality of the works presented for the Prize. 



  • The spirit of the Prize is to recognise, highlight and make known the most significant projects of creating or redesigning public space in Europe, which have been completed in 2018 and 2021. This is an honorary Prize and is awarded jointly to the institution that has initiated the project and the author/s of the work.
  • The winning projects, the finalists and a selection of the best projects that have presented for the Prize will subsequently form part of the section “Works” at the website, a collection of the most outstanding interventions that have been presented for the Prize since it was first awarded.



  • The competition rules and all the necessary information for presenting for the 2022 European Prize for Urban Public Space, along with the online form that is to be completed for free-of-charge inscription, may be found at
  • The registration period opens on April 20 and ends on May 17, 2022.
