Urban design schemes that have played a demonstrable role in the improvement of public spaces in European cities are eligible for inclusion in the second biennial European Prize for Public Space. Entirely new schemes, as well as redevelopments of existing public spaces, can be put forward. There are no restrictions to the scale or type of urban intervention, although projects must have been completed between 2000 and 2001 - schemes that are in the initial phases of developments will also be considered. The judging panel has the final say on what constitutes a city. 

The prize will be awarded jointly to the government or local body that commissioned the project and its architects or designers. The inaugural prize was awarded jointly to the Smithfield Public Space of Dublin for work by McGarry NíÉanaigh Architects, and S-Centre Mulitfuncional of Barcelona for work by the Serra-Vives-Cartagena practice. 

The European Prize for Public Space was conceived in 1999 by the Centre de Cultura Comtemporania de Barcelona and the Institut Francais de l'Architecture as a biennial prize for projects that demonstrate, "a significant improvement to open public spaces". Since the inaugural competition the partnership has expanded to include the Architecture Foundation, Architektur Zentrum Wien and the Netherlands Architecture Institute.

Entries should be submitted to the Centre de Cultura Comtemporania de Barcelona between 1 February and 31 March 2002. The winner will be announced in June.
