The event was organized in the Hyundai Motorstudio’s Innovative multi-format brand area on New Arbat Avenue in the «business cocktail party» format, in which a solemn awarding ceremony was «mixed» with a fun party, friendly communication and the thematic program «Trends in design and decoration of public spaces.”

Besides Moscow and St. Petersburg, the geography of the award now includes Arkhangelsk, Volgograd, Voronezh, Yekaterinburg, Izhevsk, Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk, Perm, Rostov-on-Don, Samara, Sochi, Suzdal, Tyumen, Chelyabinsk, Krasnoyarsk and Krasnodar Territory, Saratov and Sverdlovsk Region. And even foreign territories where Russian architects created public building projects this year: Great Britain and Georgia.

What is noteworthy is that in the «team standings», the regions managed to get ahead of the capital cities that got accustomed to the victories! Regional objects «took» 8 out of 15 cups in professional nominations, having passed through an objective and independent assessment of authoritative and numerous Professional juries consisting of the best industry experts of the country. This is despite the fact that in the short list regional projects were in the minority (their share amounted to just over a quarter of the objects). In the «individual standings» of cities, the top three winners in terms of the number of laureate objects were Moscow (3 objects), St. Petersburg (2 objects) and Yekaterinburg (2 objects).

Concept awarded its special certificate to Kalmykov Andrey and Rashchevsky Fedor; object: KFC office, Moscow.
