5 works selected by the international panel of judges chaired by Francesco Dal Co were presented with awards at the 46th Marmomacc.



2011 INTERNATIONAL AWARDS FOR ARCHITECTURE IN STONE 
The winners of the 2011 international awards for stone architecture were announced during the 46th Marmomacc in Verona September 21 through 24 2011.

The selected works reveal a great variety of functions, from public buildings for great European institutions to revitalisation projects in decaying urban areas and to places of worship. Examples of how existing stone materials can be combined and integrated with new materials, whether similar or different in nature, and of how they can interpret and evoke spiritual feelings in relation to nature.

Alongside the 5 selected projects, 2 special awards were presented: one "ad memoriam" award for the career of Greek architect Aris Konstantinidis (1913-1993), and the other for “vernacular architecture” for the tower houses of Svaneti, Georgia, valuable testimony of an ancient construction tradition which relates to the architecture of the present.
