AR Public awards

Public space is a stage for human life, a place of democracy and collectivity. Open, accessible and abundant public space is crucial to the civic health of our cities and shared landscapes – a critical communal resource. As these spaces become increasingly threatened in the face of darkening commercial and political forces, the AR Public awards recognise the importance of creating, rescuing and renovating public spaces.

Enter your projects using our simple registration. All projects must have been completed within the last five years, there are no budget or location restrictions.

Early bird deadline: 9 February 2024

Entry deadline: 8 March 2024

These awards are not only reserved for playgrounds and public gardens and 2022's shortlist is a great showcase of an array of different uses and regenerations of public spaces.
