In addition, Aalto University’s Associate Professor in Architectural Principles and Theory Jenni Reuter was granted an award worth EUR 30 000 “for empathy transcending cultural borders as well as for human-sized architecture”. Associate Professor Reuter is also a partner at the Hollmén Reuter Sandman Architects, and together with the office she has managed numerous projects in developing countries which reduce poverty, offer protection and shelter to those in need, and involve the local communities. According to the criteria for the award, Associate Professor Reuter is rousing our society to consider architecture as a means to bring equality to the world instead of deepening division.
