IOC/IPC/IAKS AWARDs

The IOC/IAKS Award and the IPC/IAKS Distinction are the most important international architecture prizes for sports, leisure and recreational facilities.

Every two years since 1987, the IOC/IAKS Award has been commending sports facilities of exemplary design and function. The winning projects can be new buildings or existing facilities that have been extended or modernized. The competition is sponsored by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS).

Together with the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), the IAKS is also awarding the IPC/IAKS Distinction for sports facilities suitable for persons with a disability. The IPC/IAKS Distinction aims to promote accessibility to sports facilities and all other buildings in order to give opportunities to practice or view sport freely and without barriers to all people, regardless of their physical abilities.
