Bruner Foundation Accepting Submissions for Award for Urban Excellence

A program of the Bruner Foundation, the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence is a national design prize that recognizes transformative urban places distinguished by their economic and social contribution to America’s cities. Founded in 1986 by architect Simeon Bruner, the award seeks to promote innovative thinking about the built environment and to advance conversations about how cities can be made better by celebrating and sharing the stories of creative and inspiring urban development projects.

One gold medal and four silver medals are awarded every two years, with the gold medalist receiving a $50,000 cash prize and silver medalists receiving $10,000 each. To be eligible, projects must be urban, built (not just a plan or a program), have been in operation long enough to demonstrate impact, and located within the continental United States.

The award is intended to be a point of departure for the exploration of urban excellence and the role of design in cities, as well as a resource for anyone interested in learning about urban development, and is distinguished by its extensive application and selection process and the detailed documentation of the winners.

For complete program guidelines, information about previous winners and submission instructions, see the Rudy Bruner Award website.
