/Premio Baffa Rivolta

 

Award > Matilde Baffa Ugo Rivolta European Architecture Award


The new edition of the Award confirms the idea of bringing the finest social building designs constructed in Europe over the last five years to the attention of a wider public. It likewise confirms its intention of becoming an international point of reference for research and debate in this area, highlighting the importance of the overall quality of the constructed environment and the sustainability of architectural design.


The projects that can be entered must to be built, ended and consigned between January 2014 and December 2018 in any of the 28 nations in the European Community and Switzerland. Social housing means residential buildings pro­moted by public or private institutions, with specific access regulations and due to satisfy a demand for lodging wich cannot be satisfied by the free market.

The winner of 2019 edition is the Danish project "Housing on Lisbjerg Bakke", Vandkusten Architekten, Denmark.
The jury has appreciated very much the construction concept of the buildings and the long term thinking, the ecological impact also related to the circular economy,  the quality of common spaces and half private spaces in between volumes, the optimization and flexibility of the plans, the low costs. All these aspects have an incredible potential  in the development of the system proposed for social housing. Unfortunately the sustainable quality of the project is not achieved by this suburban expansion creating social housing satellite, although the project manages to create a kind of urban context.

Thanks to its project Vandkusten Architekten wins € 10,000.00 and the opportunity of being part of the jury of the next edition 2021.
 

The Jury also mentioned two projects:

COOPERATIVE BUILDING STADTERLEby BUCHNER BRÜNDLER ARCHITEKTEN (Switzerland) Mention for the whole process including the productive interaction in between cooperative and architects. The result of relaxed-informal architecture, the different typologies of apartments, the richness of private and shared spaces  as roof terrace, lobby with laundry and access balconies increases the positive atmosphere. The project responds adequately to the 2000Watt society neighbourhood requirements.

 


 

SUNDPARKEN, by C.F. MØLLER ARCHITECTS (Denmark) Mention for the renovation of an unattractive, ecological and socially problematic 1970's settlement. The renovation of the buildings and the interiors, the added volumes, the change of the use of external spaces with a better relation between public, half public and private spaces, the involvement of the inhabitants helped to create acceptance and led to a new image which has established a better social balance.

THE WINNER PROJECT:
Sustainable Non-profit Housing of the Future’ was the ambitious headline of the open competition for a series of demonstration housing schemes launched in 2014 by the Ministry of Cities, Housing and Rural Areas, the city of Aarhus, and the non-profit housing administrator AL2bolig. Vandkunsten won the competition and designed with a new hybrid wood-based construction system, the 40 units finished in 2018 is Vandkunsten’s idea of contemporary Danish wood architecture.

The 2-4 storey housing scheme is located in the hilly suburb Lisbjerg just 10 km from Aarhus. It has been designed as a small village with two dense housing clusters, each with a little ‘square’, and connected with a narrow street.

A main driver for the designers’ have been the aim to create a synergy between the technical potential of the building system and the social identity derived from it, such as the influences on the variation and flexibility of the housing scheme and the mental and physical effects of living with wood.
