“Learning South of North”

Share your initiative to improve the built environment!

The Architecture Sans Frontières International Award is a bi-annual project, organized for the first time in 2015. 68 inspiring and insightful projects and ideas were submitted to the Award, out of which the Jury chose three highly qualified award recipients. Besides the three awards, the Jury highlighted a number of submissions with honorary mentions and commendations.

Our warmest congratulations for the award recipients and most of all, for all of the organizations working so wholeheartedly to improve the lives of the most vulnerable populations around the world!
