The deadline of the 2022 Dedalo Minosse International Prize for Commissioning a Building has been extended to 16 May.
The twelfth edition of the Dedalo Minosse International Prize for Commissioning a Building has been announced by ALA-Assoarchitetti that celebrates 25 years after its foundation.
Exceptional and unique, this is the only architecture award that recognizes the positive and stimulating role of the Client in the creation of great architectures and rewards the efforts of those clients who have worked harmoniously with their architects to create successful and worthy projects in the last 5 years.
Analysing and focusing on project and constructive plan process, the Prize gives special attention to the people who determine the success of a work: the Architect and the Client indeed, but also the project executors (the building firms) and the public administrations.
An international and multidisciplinary Jury will award private and public Clients together with their architects, focusing on those works that have taken into account the following issues: social and economic sustainability; works inspired by Design for All; enhancement and conservation of the environment, the landscape and the architectural heritage; use of innovative technologies and materials; use of renewable energy and resources; promotion of traditions and local languages; multidisciplinary planning approach; integration between art and architecture.
Special attention is dedicated to young Architects under 40, to whom the prize offers a chance of international exposure.
Applications can be submitted until 16th May 2022. Registration is free and can be completed on the Dedalo Minosse website by filling out the online form and sending the requested material as explained in the Prize’s Rules.
