First presented in 2006, the Maks Fabiani Award is presented every two years for outstanding achievements in urban, regional and spatial planning in Slovenia. The award was founded and is managed by the Town and Spatial Planning Association of Slovenia, the Maks Fabiani Foundation, and the Ministry of Culture and Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning of the Republic of Slovenia. It is awarded not only to completed architectural works but also to works of research, analysis and urban theory. Along with the main award, honourable mentions and the Max Fabiani Student Recognition Awards for young architects/urbanists are presented.

Both the regular and student awards are the basis for the nomination for the biennial European Urban and Regional Planning Awards, bestowed by the European Council of Spatial Planners (ECTP). The latter is an umbrella organisation of the main European spatial planning institutes.

Award recipients

Recipients to date include architects Boris Podrecca and Marko Lavrenčič for their work planning the city square in Idrija. Andrej Pogačnik received the award for his analysis of optimal approaches to introducing administrative regions in Slovenia. A collectively authored research paper on a new spatial plan for the Municipality of Ljubljana also received the award and went on to receive an honourable mention from the ECTP in 2008. In 2008 and 2014, the main award was not presented due to a lack of works meeting the award's strict standards of excellence; in 2015, the professional guidelines for the master plan of the Port of Koper were awarded.

In 2017, the Planica Nordic Centre project by A.biro, Studio AKKA, and STVAR Architects received the sixth biennial Maks Fabiani Award, while the Glossary of Urban Planning Terms, published by the Urban Planning Institute of the Republic of Slovenia in collaboration with the Fran Ramovš Institute of the Slovenian Language (ZRC SAZU), received the honourable mention.

International call for projects

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of Maks Fabiani's birth, a number of special activities were held in 2015. In that year, the Maks Fabiani Award was presented internationally for the first time, to acknowledge exceptional achievements in urban design, urban planning, regional planning, and spatial planning from 2005 to 2015 in Slovenia and the neighbouring countries of Austria, Italy, Croatia and Hungary.
