The Mayor of Katowice City – Marcin Krupa received, on 27 April, from the Polish President -Andrzej Duda the Grand Prix award in the competition entitled „Accessibility Leader” as well as the award in the category „Local government”. The city of Katowice was recognized as a leader in the field of eliminating barriers that hinder people with disabilities. The award ceremony took place in the Presidential Palace in Warsaw.

You have noticed serious problems, which are imperceptible for others such as a high threshold; you combat discrimination in everyday life – emphasized Andrzej Duda during the award ceremony. It was the 2nd edition of the architectural and urban planning competition entitled „Accessibility Leader” which aims at promoting a universal design respecting the needs of all people as well as the best architectural and urban solutions in adaptation of the space and buildings to the needs of people with disabilities.

We are grateful that our practices facilitating life of disabled people have been noticed and recognized. New, attractive public spaces, accessible for everyone, have been created in Katowice. We are currently taking measures to implement different kinds of facilities in a number of city areas – highlited Marcin Krupa.

It is worth mentioning that Tomasz Konior – a famous architect from Katowice, the author of the new seat of the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra and many other buildings was granted the award in the category „Architect – Urbanist” for his entire artistic activity and projects, which cater for requirements of disabled people.
