Prix Versailles 2021 Finale: The world’s best contemporary architecture honoured at UNESCO

After the announcement of the World Selections in the categories of Airports, Campuses, Passenger Stations and Sports, followed by the Continental Winners for the categories Shops & Stores, Shopping Malls, Hotels and Restaurants, 94 recent creations featuring extraordinary architecture and design were competing in the Prix Versailles 2021 World Finale.

The World Judges Panel crowned the top three projects in each of those eight categories, discerning a total of 24 World Titles.

The official announcement of these results provided an opportunity for the Chairman of the World Judges Panel, Jean-Jacques Annaud, to underscore the admiration and respect that we owe to works of architecture in view of the lasting marks they leave.


Ernesto Ottone Ramírez, UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Culture, further reiterated the importance of the Prix Versailles in promoting sustainable architecture in fields as varied as education, sport and tourism, in every part of the world.

Dialogue and interconnections between the different aspects of the human environment – from ecology to social relations to culture – pave the way for intelligent sustainable development. More than a mere goal, this offers a wonderful promise of the ability to meet the latest challenges facing the world today.
