The Petr Parléř Foundation uses this contest to search for the most original architectonic designs of public premises and public administration buildings. The sense of this contest is the support of the development of architecture, humanization of cities and care for the environment. Each year the Petr Parléř Award provides the municipalities with the possibility to gain a professionally elaborated architectonic study.
A record number of 52 proposals from 39 Czech and Moravian cities enrolled this year. An eight-member jury decided to pass the following cities into the second round: Bílovec, Bohumín, Červany, Jičín, Kadaň, Lanškroun, Mimoň, Nová Paka, Prostějov, Šumperk, Varnsdorf and Vimperk.
Concurrently, architects were addressed to elaborate and submit their proposals for the public premises. Those who will decide to participate in the contest and whose study will be evaluated by the jury as the most original will receive the Petr Parléř Award. A financial bonus is included in this award. The celebratory award ceremony will take place in Prague on January 25th, 2006.
