This year the Czech Technical University in Prague honored its history and tradition, proudly celebrating three hundred years of architectural education in the Czech Republic. The INSPIRELI AWARDS 2017 gala ceremony was held at the University as part of this auspicious anniversary. The gala ceremony created a unique opportunity for students of architecture and architects to receive recognition from INSPIRELI’s distinguished panel of experts by the receipt of an INSPIRELI AWARD in one of two categories.
The INSPIRELI AWARDS 2016 gala ceremony took place on the first anniversary of the death of the Professor of architecture Borek Sipek, the Chairman of the first INSPIRELI AWARDS 2015, who, along with Vaclav Havel, inspired the original idea for an international competition for young architects. The INSPIRELI AWARDS 2016 took place in the Vaclav and Dagmar Havel's VIZE 97 Prague Crossroads Centre - an international spiritual and cultural centre situated in the heart of Prague's historic St. Anna's Church in the Czech Republic.
