Ajac X Prize

The Catalan Association of Young Architects (AJAC-COAC) awards prizes to Geographies of Innovation and the Historic Charter of Barcelona.

The biennial X AJAC Awards for Young Architects (20th Aniversary edition) have been awarded last week. The Catalan Association of Young Architects awarded the paper “How urban fabric fosters knowledge transfer and innovation: the example of Barcelona” in the category of articles. Originally published by the International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP), the paper presents the initial findings of the research Geographies of Innovation. The jury also awarded the Historic Charter of Barcelona in the category “Architecture dissemination”.

We thank our colleagues of AJAC for supporting young architects and carrying an essential task in the promotion of new fields of research and action in Architecture!
