The eighth edition of the Barbara Cappochin Biennial International Architecture Prize was launched on 3 May 2019 during the Architects’ Council of Europe (ACE) Congress in Innsbruck, Austria. Organised by the Barbara Cappochin Foundation, the prize seeks to spotlight the central role that architecture plays in the evolution of landscape. It focusses on urban peripheries, the use of bio-architecture, energy efficiency and sustainable urban development. The biennial prize has been supported by the UIA since its creation in 2005.
