    Blue Award for Sustainable Architecture: Winners Announced Projects from India, Austria, Hungary, Sweden, UK, China, Italy, Greece The Blue Award is a biennial international student competition. It honours projects which address the topic of sustainability in the fields of architecture, regional planning and urbanism. On Thursday, April 26, 2012, the winners were announced at the Award Ceremony at the Vienna University of Technology. Honorary President of the Jury was Sir Michael Hopkins.

    Selected from 232 entries, 11 nominees from 8 countries were awarded first prizes, special prizes, special mentions and honourable mentions last night at the BLUE AWARD ceremony at Vienna’s University of Technology. First prizes went to Nikhil Chaudhary (CEPT University Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India) in the category “Urban Development and  Transformation, Landscape Development”; to Gregor Fasching (Vienna University of Technology, Austria) in the category “Ecological Building”; and to Veronika Holczer (Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary) in the category “Building in Existing Structures.”

    The Blue Award is organized by the Department of Spatial and Sustainable Design at Vienna University of Technology and overseen by the UIA (International Union of Architects). The competition is an open invitation to future-oriented and sustainable solutions. How will our built environment present itself in the coming years? Not a one-dimensional
    approach leads to results, but rather a comprehensive view of the tasks at hand is necessary to provide solutions and protect an environment worth experiencing.
