It constitutes a contest of the work and publications carried out in the American continent during the last four years. This event involves a large number of professional architects and urban planners from all over the continent.
Additionally, students who pursue the last 2 years of all architecture schools in Ecuador, participate in the MEDALLA DE ORO contest.
Through the BIENNIAL CONTEST event, it has been possible to present about 6000 projects and publications during all these years and in turn, a much larger audience has been able to access the exhibited proposals. The awarding of these works and publications facilitates a recognition of the best interventions in the American continent. This recognition allows to see the greatest quality works, like an in-depth analysis of Pan-American architecture. The comparison between these works constitutes an apprenticeship for both, those who compete, and those who judge and analyze them.
