Cultural Endowment

The architecture endowment serves the purpose of promoting the creativeness and social sensitivity of architecture. As opposed to other fields of art, architecture is an area where economic and social processes are manifested in a most direct way and are the most broadly visible. The culture of architecture or the lack of it has a very long-term impact on the human environment.
The endowment council includes seven persons active in the relevant field of culture, nominated by the associations representing the respective field. Endowment members perform their duties until the appointment of new members. The same person may belong to the endowment council for two consecutive terms.
