The 17th Premio Architettura Città di Oderzo award

The judges of the 17th Premio Architettura Città di Oderzo award have announced the ten finalists from whom the winner of the 2021 edition will be selected in April. This heterogeneous group includes projects varying widely in terms of setting, function and client, from homes to schools, from mountain shelters to wineries, from industrial buildings to exhibition centres, public spaces in historic settings and landscape installations. Different types of projects, set in equally different Italian landscapes, as the award is primarily intended for projects built in the regions of the Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige and Friuli Venezia Giulia, which include not only big cities and their suburbs but provincial towns and small villages, in a variety of natural landscapes ranging from Alpine peaks to valleys, from the plains to the coast.
