Instituted in 2005, the Maks Fabiani Award was first awarded in 2006 and subsequently given every two years. It is presented for outstanding achievements in urban, regional and spatial planning in Slovenia. This encompasses not only actual, realised works, but also research and analysis papers, urban theory contributions and the similar. Aside from the main award, there are also the so-called special mentions, and the Max Fabiani Student Recognition Awards for the young architects/urbanists.

Both are the basis for the nomination for the biannual European Urban and Regional Planning Awards, given out by the European Council of Spatial Planners (ECTP). The latter is an umbrella association of the main European spatial planning institutes.

Award recipients

Some of the recipients so far were the architects Boris Podrecca and Marko Lavrenčič who planned the city square in Idrija, and – for a rather different project - Andrej Pogačnik, who wrote an analysis about the optimal introduction of regions into the Slovenian administrative apparatus. Another awarded project was a collectively authored research paper on a new spatial plan for the Municipality of Ljubljana, which had in 2008 actually gotten an ECTP special mention. In that year, as in 2014, the main award was not presented due to none of the works being remarkable enough. In 2015 the Professional guidelines for the master plan of the Port of Koper was awarded.

In 2017 the Planica Nordic Centre project by A.biro, Studio AKKA, and STVAR Architects, won 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), got the Maks Fabiani Recognition Award.

International call for projects

In the Fabiani's Year 2015 the Maks Fabiani Award is for the first time an international award, bestowed for the 2005–2015 achievements of exceptional work in urban design, urban planning, regional planning, or spatial planning carried out in Slovenia and neighboring Austria, Italy, Croatia, and Hungary.
