Impact of Covid-19 on the event
The live event was scheduled to take place in Valencia, Spain in May 2020. Due to the pandemic the event was postponed to 2021. The Prize giving is going online to ensure a safe event.

But we are glad that for the first time we can make the event accessible to a broader audience. We will find out together which projects are the winners in each of 6 categories. Which architects have designed and which companies have created the best of the best facades. Finally, which Baumit company is taking the honor for the most beautiful facades from all over Europe.
