Deutsche Bank Urban Age Award announced in São Paulo
1. the “Cooperativa Nova Esperança” reclycing initiative in the peripheral “Vila Nova” district;
2. the "Biourban" iurban intervention scheme in the “Mauro” favela; and
3. the Instituto ACAIA's project for an arts workshop and public space interventions in favelas in the Vila Leopoldina.
All schemes responded to the award’s objectives to celebrate projects that improve the environment of city dwellers lives and promote new partnerships between the city’s local actors and institutional agencies.
Considering the high quality of the projects, Gary Hattem, Managing Director of the Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation, spontaneously decided to reward the three finalists: Instituto ACAIA, Cooperativa de Reciclagem Nova Esperança e BioUrban, with $ 5,000 dollars each.
After selecting a shortlisted of twelve highly qualified submissions, the jury visited a selection of projects to inspect their implementation on the ground and evaluate their impact on the built environment and local communities to confirm their adherence to the Deutsche Bank Urban Age's Award selection criteria.
