Named for UIA Past President Vassilis Sgoutas, the aim of this Prize is to highlight actions or realisations that contribute in an efficient manner to the struggle against the misery of those living below the poverty line.

 

It honours an architect or a team led by an architect that has made a significant contribution to the improvement of the living conditions of the most destitute populations, to their habitat, their environment and their well-being.

 

The Vassilis Sgoutas Prize will be awarded every three years, on the occasion of the UIA world congress.
