30 Finalists.

The evaluation system has been provided with the amount of 80% by the technic jury and 20% by general public votation. The IS ARCH Team understands the Architecture like a tool on the social service and in that way everybody should be able to speak about it.

The maximum puntuation with 20 points was given to the project that got the bigger amount of votes on our website and 0 points to the one that did not get none, therefore the remaining projects’ points have been defined between this interval proportionally. In the same way the 80 points from jury members have been calculated.
