ENVI-met UNI LAB Award

Besides our mission to help building more liveable urban areas for people, Michael and I are committed to raising awareness about climate change amongst students worldwide. Every year, we are inspired by the projects submitted to the ENVI-met UNILAB. In these projects students explore and measure the impact of diverse urban design strategies and offer nature-based solutions to address climate challenges.

From now on, we are happy to reward those most innovative projects. Therefore we would like to encourage students of urban planning, architecture and landscape architecture to contribute to climate adaptation.

The ENVI-met UNI LAB AWARD 2022 will reward the winning projects with a prize of 750 euros (1st place) and 500 euros (2nd place) and feature the winner on social media.

The winners will be selected by an independent jury of four outstanding international experts in the field of sustainable architecture:

Caio Frederico E Silva
Architect, Professor and Dean of Research and Innovation at University of Brazil

Emanuele Naboni
Associate Professor at University of Parma and Associate Professor at the Royal Danish Academy (KADK)

Marjolein Pijpers-van Esch
Assistant Professor and Academic Lead Climate Change Adaptation of the Climate Action Programme at TU Delft

Paula Cadima
Director of the MArch+MSc Sustainable Environmental Design, Architectural Association PhD Supervisor and Member of the AA Teaching Committee.

In the coming days, we will present more about the jury members, and ask them more about the core topics of their work.

The UNI LAB Award and further details on how to participate will be announced in January 2022.
