The winners of the XII Dedalo Minosse International Prize for Commissioning a Building were announced onFriday September 16th, in the spectacular setting of the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, Italy.
A particularly meaningful edition, as it coincides with the25th anniversary from its establishment.

“It’s extremely exciting and a great honour – states the directress of the Prize Marcella Gabbianito see how the international relevance of this event has grown through the years in spite of pandemics, wars and international economic crises.
This demonstrates how architecture, just like music, is a universal language that knows no boundaries nor political barriers, through which professionals, clients and people who are into architecture from all around the world can communicate with each other and recognize themselves as the most authentic form of true beauty and quality of life.
And it’s with this deeply rooted motivation that we already began planning the Italian and international tour that will expose the works awarded in this 12th edition of the Prize in the most iconic, representative and rich in history places of the world.”

A thrilling night, that began with the awarding ceremony of the winners in a packed Teatro Olimpico, hosted by Giorgio Tartaro, who called the visibly excited winners on stage.

After the awarding ceremony, the Multimedia Exhibition was inaugurated in the close Palladian Basilica in front of the authorities, the winners and the public. Graphic tables, models, videos and installations will be exposed and until October 2nd will discuss more than 60 ways of conceiving architecture: those of the clients and of the awarded architects, recommended and published by the Jury.

Meanwhile the Basilica will host the Forum of the Clients with seminars, conferences and workshops for professionals, entrepreneurs and architecture lovers.

Just like every other edition of the Prize, the Collateral Art exhibition by Fortunato D’Amico, titled “Art and Architecture between Nature and Artifice”, will explore the topic of the relationship that humans have with nature. Among the main artists who contributed to the exhibition: Raymundo Sesma, Duilio Forte e Daniela Pellegrini, Paolo Tofani, Max Marra.

The International Prize Dedalo Minosse for commissioning a building 2022 has been awarded to J.S.T. Connector, Atsuhiro Nishimoto, leader Japanese company, for the realization of “SWALES / J.S.T. Harrisburg Production Engineering Center”, conceived and designed by Ryuichi Ashizawa Architects & Associates, built in 2021 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA.

“J.S.T. Connector” is a Japanese company, leader in the market of connectors, with an important history of attention to architecture and that always cared about its employees’ physical and mental health and about the environment.

In this project, in an industrial area of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the client expressed his desire to recreate the Japanese sense of harmony while paying tribute to Native Americans, designed for everyday life, but also for future generations. These goals altogether created three “guide dialogues” of the project: between past and future, human beings and natural kingdom, Japanese and American culture.

The site had a hard and dry soil, that only dispersed rain water on the surface. The architecture was conceived as part of the water circulation system, that know permeates from the roof to the soil, through the “Swales” (wet basins).

Once the goal of reaching harmony was set, the project of the productive building was able to change significantly the natural environment and people’s awareness. Swales have raised the soil’s humidity level and because of that trees started growing and many creatures spontaneously moved in the forest that surrounds the area, where they started to reproduce. The personnel learned to use energy more consciously. That’s how design has looked after the environment, with rain water permeating the earth, pointing to the future of the industry.

With climate change, also the ideas of designers and engineers adapt to the environment: “Nature expanding before our eyes gives us excellent suggestions”.
