Description
The Charter Awards program is unique in its emphasis on the entirety of the built and natural environment -- from the function and sustainability of regions to the fine-grain architectural details that strengthen people's ties to a place over time. The Charter Awards look at how plans and projects integrate with their contexts and, consequently, how they improve both the human experience of place and the relationship between the built and natural environments. Submissions are invited across the Charter's three scales, from broad regions to individual blocks and buildings.
Projects may correspond to any of the three scales addressed by the Charter:
I. The Region: Metropolis, City, and Town
II. Neighborhood, District, and Corridor
III. Block, Street, and Building.
