The Prix Versailles is a set of annual architectural prizes given by the French-based World Prix Versailles Organization.[1][2][3][4]


Since its creation in 2015, the Prix has been presented at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, acknowledging achievements in various forms of architecture.

The Prix initially focused on commercial buildings, with the declared aim of fostering a better mix of the economic and cultural domains.[citation needed]

After beginning with shops and stores, hotels and restaurants, the Prix expanded to include shopping malls in 2017, followed by the categories of university campuses, passenger stations and sports facilities in 2019. An airports category was added in 2020.

Geographically speaking the Prix recognized French projects in 2015 (with four Prix and special prizes awarded)[5] and then went international in 2016 (with nine Prix and special prizes).[6] Continental editions were created in 2017,[7] giving rise in some cases to continental awards ceremonies in 2018.[8]

The Prix Versailles aims to underscore “the role that economic agents of all sectors may play in beautifying and improving our living environment”.[7]

The Prix launched the International Appeal of 7 June 2020 (“Towards a cultural renaissance of the economy”),[9] which was published simultaneously in Le Monde.[10]
