The Charter Awards recognize excellence in architectural, landscape, and urban design and planning, especially where that excellence engenders more equitable, sustainable, connected, healthy, and prosperous communities.
Entries are judged on the extent to which they fulfill and advance the principles of the Charter of the New Urbanism, which defines the essential qualities of outstanding buildings and urban places from the scale of the region down to the block and building.
Projects that embody a wide range of Charter principles are strongly encouraged to apply. The judging criteria recognize currently built or implemented work as a priority and special achievement, while also acknowledging that large-scale plans can take years to implement physically.
