House of the Year 2020

The House of the Year Award is an important recognition of professionals among Hungarian architects which surveys and evaluates detached houses and minor residential buildings year by year, more recently also including the latest public buildings. On September 17th, a gala was held to publish the results of this year’s House of the Year 2020 contest results. It was also a live broadcast so that anyone could follow the events. Having a past of several decades now, this professional contest also has included chief awards in the categories of detached family houses and public buildings for three years now. This year, however, seven special prizes as well as an audience prize per each category have also been awarded besides the two main prizes. A total of 20 public buildings and 33 detached houses have been surveyed by the jury. Publishers of the contest were the Hungarian Academy of Arts, the Chamber of Hungarian Architects and the Association of Hungarian Architects in cooperation with the major producers of the building industry.
