Judges' comments

Sundling and Szentes’ paper develops interesting insights into complex, intractable, open-ended, and unpredictable systems where the most crucial aspect is the human aspect fueled by the diversity of the stakeholders. Systems thinking is challenging in such conditions and that is where the concept of wicked problems is shown to be quite useful. The paper shows its potential as an analytical tool, a creative tool, and an emancipatory tool in the context of renovation decisions within “wicked” urban environments with conflicting technical viability, financial viability, and environmental performance objectives.
