This prize was established in 1986 on the occasion of the celebration of Harvard’s 350th and the GSD’s 50th anniversaries and to mark the visit of His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales, to Harvard and the GSD. The award is made periodically by the Design School for an urban design project larger in scope than a single building, constructed anywhere in the world during the previous ten years. Award-winning projects are selected because they make a positive and substantial contribution to the public realm of a city, improve the quality of urban life, and demonstrate a humane and worthwhile direction for the design of urban environments.
