On behalf of the International Council, supported by Mikhail Piotrovsky, Director of the State Hermitage, and Richard Armstrong, Director of Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation, it is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the 4th International Golden Trezzini Awards for Architecture and Design.

The Awards, established in 2018, are named after Domenico Trezzini (1670—1734), Italian speaking architect of Swiss origin, the first architect of St. Petersburg, Russia. The main objective of the Awards is to acknowledge and promote architectural and designer projects that amount to works of art.

We invite developers and planners, architects and renovators, designers and interior decorators, as well as students of architecture schools and departments.

Nominees can apply from anywhere in the world.

In 2020, the Awards have brought together 744 projects from 59 countries. See the winners: https://www.goldtrezzini.ru/en/2020winners/.
