    Il concorso è indubbiamente interessante. Tuttavia non posso fare a meno di mettere in evidenza l'evidente calo dell'importo dei premi che certamente è poc adeguato all'impego progettuale richiesto, non solo per questo concorso. Questo è preoccupante. Saluti, arch bernardo re

    Se vinci un premio di progettazione negli Emirati Arabi Uniti... non credo sia importante il suo importo! Sono pronto a cederlo, mi basta la menzione...
