18/11/2013

The Jury of the Prize met on November the 14th 2013 to decide the winner. The jury was composed by its official members Sascha Zander (President), Giordana Ferri, Stefano Guidarini, Bart Lootsma, Orsina Simona Pierini (substitute member of Alessandro Maggioni) and Camillo Magni (substitute member participating to the jury without voting rights). Paolo Mazzoleni, member of the Order of Architects, without voting rights, is also attending.

The award notice entrusts the jury the task of selecting a winning project, and the faculty to specify projects worthy of mention.

Winning project

19-Atelier Kempe Thill, Hiphouse in Zwolle (The Netherlands)
The project in Zwolle presented by Atelier Kempe Thill has been selected for its flexibility, multi functionality and economy. The building could be easily used for housing, laboratories or offices. The central core containing a double stair and an elevator for all 64 units shows the efficiency of this project. The plan layout is very flexible with minimal circulation areas and large living spaces, which could easily be modified.The building has beautiful proportions and sophisticated details. The inhabitants are really in the centre of this project, both in the generous panoramic views that are offered to them and in the way they appear in the perception of the building at night.

Mentioned projects
1 - Zon-e, Social housing for mine workers, Degana (Spain)
The building is based on a simple housing type, floor plan, section and facade are organized to form one sculpture.

7 - Alberola Martorell Arquitectos - 22 Social housing in Madrid (Spain)
The project is site specific and introduces collective spaces in an otherwise dense typology by means of a clever use of the section.

23 - Ripolltizon - Social housing in Sa Pobla, Mallorca (Spain)
It is a complex building in a dense fabric that is based on the adding and stacking of simple modules. The outdoor spaces are designed very beautifully.

26 - Nunzio Gabriele Sciveres con Maria Giuseppina Grasso Cannizzo - A2M Social housing, Marina di Ragusa (Italy)
The project is an interesting new typology, a mix of classical row house and patio structures in a completely new town planning concept, with a road moving through, enabling parking at each house.

43 - Mgm Morales De Giles Arquitectos - 140 Social housing in Monte Hacho (Spain)
This is an enigmatic project combining traditional typologies -towers and patios- in an aesthetic that is reduced beyond minimalism.
