      The evaluation process for entries to the BLT Built Design Awards is based on various judging criteria that are constantly adapted to new technical, social, economic, and ecological requirements. These criteria are not comprehensive and not all criteria are applied to each project. They simply provide an orientation framework and basis for judging, which is complemented by each individual juror’s expertise and socio-cultural background.

      Each member of the Jury is passionately committed to providing a fair evaluation. Jury members are assigned categories based on their specific background and expertise. All projects are viewed and judged randomly and anonymously to ensure unbiased and fair judging.

      The judging criteria include the following:

      • Aesthetics — form, shape, color, texture, finishing, the material used, etc
      • Innovation — does the design provide something new to the market or supplement/improve an existing structure?
      • Practicality / Functionality – ease of cleaning, safety, maintenance… 
      • Ergonomics — How is the interaction with the client? Space optimization? 
      • Durability — the quality and longevity of the product/material
      • Impact — the benefit delivered to the client and/or society by the Design
      • Integration — about the integration of the project to its local environment
      • Ecological compatibility — potential environmental and/or ecological impact
