THE JURY' DECISION
The international jury had the following members: Andrea Klimko (Chairman of the jury), Slovakia; Ian Bogle, United Kingdom; Maciej Hawrylak, Poland; Paul Katzberger, Austria; Petr Kratochvíl, Czech Republic. The first day, they carefully examined 72 submitted projects. 19 projects made i t to the shortlist. Subsequently, the jury agreed to see the buildings in situ and visited 14 buildings that had advanced to the shortlist. The first day, the jury examined the projects in Prague. The second and third days, the jury visited other projects in Bohemia and Moravia.
On the fourth day, the jury agreed on whom to award the main prize, the Grand Prix of Architects, individual prizes and honorable mentions in the following categories: New building, reconstruction, family house, interior, exhibition, stage design, landscape architecture and garden architecture and architectural design and small architectural structure. No work was enrolled in the category of urban design. The jury agreed unanimously on the Grand Prix winner. Every assessed project has passed through the expert discussion of all members of the jury, which, finally, agreed unanimously on the winners of the prizes and honorable mentions for each category. When selecting the winners, the interior and family house categories were discussed mostly by members of the jury.
Despite the depression in the construction industry, the 2012 Grand Prix of Architects was rich in the number and quality of enrolled works. In comparison with the previous years, more projects were enrolled mainly in the categories of quantitatively smaller and less investment- intensive buildings. However, this fact made the assessment more interesting and responsible. To be a member of the jury of the Grand Prix of Architects, a prestigious Czech prize for Czech architecture, certainly enriched all involved both from the professional and human points of view.
