These are the innovators working throughout the world that the “Global Award for Sustainable Architecture” wants to reward every year. Created in 2007 by  the architect and professor Jana Revedin in partnership with the “Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine” of Paris, this award, which received the patronage of UNESCO in 2011, rewards architects who share the ethics of sustainable development and offer new experiences in urban and rural areas.
