MAB Awards Nominees

The Media Architecture Biennale Awards celebrates outstanding projects at the intersection of architecture, urban design and planning, media and interaction design.

For our 5th call for the MAB Awards, we are glad to have received over 100 submissions from all over the world and we are truly impressed by the quality of the submissions – making a decision was not an easy task for the jury members. Winners will be announced during the MAB Awards ceremony, which will be live-streamed during the MAB20 on July 2st, 15:30-16:30 CEST. A selection of projects is also featured on the Media Architecture Catalogue, a digital compendium of outstanding projects that define the state of the art of built Media Architectures worldwide.
