The European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention inaugurates its 5th edition coinciding with a rewarding anniversary, made possible by the project's 10th anniversary.
This biennial event, organized with the support of COAC (Architects' Association of Catalonia) and AADIPA (Association of Architects for the Defence and Intervention in Architectural Heritage), opens its online registration on December 21 and will remain open until March 12, 2021. This event, and yet another edition, is a call to participate to all experts related to interventions in architectural heritage -architects, historians, archaeologists ...- whose works have been carried out in the European geographical area during the period between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2020, and which respond to the requirements of the 4 categories around which the award is structured: Category A: Intervention in built heritage; Category B: Outdoor spaces; Category C: Planning and Category D: Dissemination.
Continuing with the dynamics established in the previous call, to give visibility to a greater number of works, in category A, the jury will make a selection of up to 15 and in B, a maximum of 10, from which, in both cases, will emerge an award-winner and three finalists; on the other hand, in categories C and D, there will be one winner and three finalists. On the other hand, from all the work presented, and also for the second consecutive year, a Special Mention for Restoration will be awarded to the intervention that from a technical and methodological point of view stands out for its quality, precision and respect.
Regarding the official award ceremony, yet again this year, it will take place within the framework of the International Biennial of Architectural Heritage Intervention. A conference that is organized by the award management, with the support of the COAC, AADIPA and the Generalitat de Catalunya, with its 5th edition being planned for May 2021 in Barcelona.
