This 5th edition, as was the case within the previous call, has opted for a jury dynamic that provides visibility to a relevant number of works and thus contributes to recognizing the optimum level of excellent heritage practice in Europe. during this sense, in category A, the jury will make a variety of up to fifteen and in B, a maximum of 10, from which, in both cases, will emerge an award-winner and three finalists; on the opposite hand, in categories C and D, there’ll be one winner and three finalists. additionally , in accordance with this aim, from all the work presented, the award
management, for the second consecutive year, will award a Special Mention for Restoration to the intervention that from a technical and methodological point of view stands out for its quality, precision and respect. All the works presented are going to be added to the Digital Archive of the Award, which already has quite 800 entries from 27 different European countries.
The European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention, led by Ramon Calonge, Oriol Cusidó, Marc Manzano, and Jordi Portal, architect members of the group AADIPA, that in its previous edition reached significant figures –with 239 candidatures and 23 countries represented–, aspires to continue increasing participation and quality, to consolidate its European scope and to involve associations, citizens and other agents associated with heritage so as to open up to society.
On the opposite hand, and coinciding with celebrating the maturity reached with the ten-year duration of the project that have made the decision possible, its directors reveal their main challenge for the future: to maneuver on from looking to reflecting. Therefore, one among the objectives of the Award, additionally to maintaining its growth and recognizing the simplest works, is to showcase the plurality of approaches within the field of intervention within the architectural heritage of Europe.
As happens per annum , the official award ceremony will happen within the framework of the International Biennial of Architectural Heritage Intervention. A conference that’s organized by the award management, with the support of the COAC, AADIPA and therefore the Generalitat de Catalunya, which will hold its 5th edition in May 2021 in Barcelona.
