The 11th Veronica Rudge Green Prize in Urban Design honors two projects that demonstrate the potential for the planning and execution of mobility infrastructure to transform a city and its region through carefully articulated design interventions. Established in 1986, the biennial Green Prize recognizes projects that make an exemplary contribution to the public realm of a city, improve the quality of life in that context, and demonstrate a humane and worthwhile direction for the design of urban environments. The award ceremony will be hosted by Rahul Mehrotra on behalf of the jury. The projects will be presented by Eduardo Souto de Moura of Souto Moura Arquitectos with João Velez Carvalho, hairman of the oard and CEO, Metro do Porto; and Alejandro Echeverri of Alejandro Echeverri Arquitectos with Margarita María Ángel Bernal of Empresa de Desarollo Urbano, for the Northeastern Urban Integration Project.
