- 5th edition of the European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention
The award is led by Ramon Calonge, Oriol Cusidó, Marc Manzano and Jordi Portal, architects and members of the Association of Architects for the Defence and Intervention in Architectural Heritage (AADIPA). The fifth edition is even more special because it marks the tenth anniversary of the biennial contest, turning it into an opportunity to showcase the variety of approaches to interventions on the architectural heritage in Europe. On this occasion, any work completed, conducted or published in the European geographical area in the period between 1 January 2014 and 31 December 2020, and which meets the requirements of the award’s 4 categories can be submitted.
Category A, called Intervention in built heritage, covers all architectural, permanent or ephemeral interventions in architectural properties of heritage interest. Category B focuses on Exterior spaces, encompassing interventions in the historic public space and monumental and cultural landscape environments. Category C is all about Urban planning, namely, all planning work aimed at protecting, preserving, and enhancing architectural heritage. Category D—Disclosure—is also exciting. It goes a step further, to embrace initiatives, activities and actions that aim at disseminating the values of architectural heritage.
Like every year, the official awards ceremony will be held as part of the International Biennial of Architectural Heritage Intervention. This conference is organized by the award management, with the support of the COAC, AADIPA and the Generalitat de Catalunya, and will hold its 5th edition in Barcelona in May 2021. The deadline for registrations is 12 March 2021.
