The Czech Chamber of Architects together with international jury has announced the nomination of the Czech Architecture Award in the Waldstein Garden in Prague on 23 June 2022.
International jury selected 29 architectural works. The public will learn the name of the winner of the main prize and the other finalists in November 2022 at a gala event at the Forum Karlín.
Seven-member expert jury selected among the nominees from 201 submitted buildings such realizations that exhibit high aesthetic and technical qualities and at the same time interact appropriately with the surroundings and have a social benefit. The typology of the nominated set of works is varied. The most represented are projects for housing, whether private, public, intended for recreation or public spaces. The selection also includes two viewpoints in the landscape, a nature trail, a sports hall, a winery or a distillery.

This year, the jury is headed by architect, urban planner and academic, Marialessandra Secchi (Italy), architect Ueli Brauen (Switzerland), architect Katalin Csillag (Hungary), architect and urban planner Patrick Koschuch (Netherlands), architect Pavol Mikolajčák (Slovakia, Italy), architect, urban planner and academic Els Verbakel (Belgium, Israel) and landscape architect and academic Kathrin Volk (Germany).
