The judging is based on design excellence (including aesthetics, environmental, cultural and contextual considerations) and the overall originality of the project – including new, innovative technologies or creative solutions used. The projects’ practicality, and fulfillment of functional requirements, sustainability practices and overall environmental considerations of the project are also taken into account during the judging process.

Receiving the Michel Gelrubin Prize award is not only a significant achievement in architecture, but also ensures that the award winners will receive promotional material to publicize his achievements.
