Entries Invited for 2013 Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence

Deadline: December 10, 2012

A program of the Bruner Foundation, the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence is designed to celebrate urban places that are distinguished by quality design and their social and economic contributions to American cities. Award winners offer creative place-making solutions that transcend the boundaries between architecture, urban design, and planning, and showcase innovative thinking about the nation’s cities.

The purpose of the award is to discover places that embody design excellence inclusive of social, economic, and environmental factors. The foundation does not restrict the kinds of projects that may apply. Award winners are not selected through an established set of criteria. Rather, the criteria emerge from the selection committee discussion of the applications.

Projects must be a real place, not just a plan or a program, and be located in the forty-eight contiguous United States.

The award is given to five winning projects in each biennial award cycle. One Gold Medal of $50,000 and four Silver Medals of $10,000 will be awarded. Award winners may use prize money in any way that benefits the project.

The complete Call for Entries, the application form, and further information about the award (including a digital archive and case studies of past winners) are available at the Bruner Foundation Web site.
