Each year projects from over 20 cities have been submitted and distinguished themselves with sustainability, innovation, market-oriented concepts and high level architecture. The awards ceremony took place in Berlin as a festive gala event and was attended by industry leaders from the field of architecture and real estate, as well as international guests from 14 countries.
