Skoltech’s new campus has been shortlisted for the 2019 Prix Versailles award, a prestigious prize that is in association with UNESCO and the International Union of Architects.
Prix Versailles sets a standard for creating high quality spaces, and celebrates the world’s most beautiful building categories: Shops & Stores, Shopping Malls, Hotels and Restaurants, Campuses, Passenger Stations, and Sports Facilities. The latter three Prix Versailles categories are new, and the Secretariat announced world selections for them on May 14, 2019.
Eighteen candidates have been chosen to compete (six for each category), and Skoltech is among the six campuses that have been selected. For each category, the World Judges Panel, which is tasked with naming the most beautiful campus, will offer awards for the most beautiful interior and the most beautiful exterior.
The results will be finalized by July 4, 2019. The World Awards Ceremony is to be held at 17.30 on September 12, 2019 at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.
