Chiesa Diruta is a catholic church built in Grottole (MT) in the 15th century, in order to host the local community of clergymen and to become one the most important churches of the bishopric. It suffered a lot of damages due to earthquakes, fires, and building issues so it was soon abandoned.
The competition, open to architects, engineers, and students, asks the participants to transform the ruin into a Concert Hall. The deadline is March 12th. It’s requested one A1 sheet (59cmx84cm). The total prizes are 4000 Euro. The submitted projects will be displayed at an exhibition in April 2021 in Grottole, and the winners, in addition to receiving a prize, will be invited to explain their projects to the citizenry.
The international Jury members are:
- Adam Nathaniel Furman
- Emanuele Fidone
- Assemble Architects
- Diego Hernandez (ArchDaily)
- Simone Bossi
- Graca Correia & Roberto Ragazzi (Correia Ragazzi Arquitectos)
- Andrea Paoletti (Wonder Grottole)
- Wenqiang Han (Archstudio)
- Eric de Broche des Combes (Luxigon)
- Jaume Mayol & Irene Pérez (TEd’A arquitectes)
Is it possible to bring back to life one of the most important religious buildings of Southern Italy? The answer to this question is in the hands of the architects, the engineers, and the students who will participate in this competition.
