On 9 December 2013 ZUS received the Urban Intervention Award Berlin 2013 for curating the IABR Test Site Rotterdam, a collaborative project with the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam and the city of Rotterdam.

Urban Intervention Award Berlin
The goal of the Urban Intervention Award Berlin is to contribute significantly to the improvement of the quality of life in an urban environment. The intention is to bring to the public eye interventions in urban space which contribute substantially to newly defining, revitalizing and valorising inner-city neighbourhoods. This can be the case with the transformation and conversion of old buildings as well as with new construction, temporary buildings and installations in the urban space. It is not a matter of achieving architectural effects or an expressive design vocabulary, but of architecture as a stimulator of processes which contribute to transforming a location.
The prizes will be given to outstanding realized projects which are examples of excellent architecture in conjunction with new innovative concepts of use and/or conversion, and which were developed through cooperation between partners coming from varying fields and disciplines.
