European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention 2021

5th edition of European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention AADIPA

The 5th edition of European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention, with a success of participation that coincides with the celebration of its 10th anniversary, publishes the names of those shortlisted in the a and b categories.

Barcelona 20 of May – The European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention, a biennial contest organized by the COAC (Architects’ Association of Catalonia) and AADIPA (Association of Architects for the Defence and Intervention in Architectural Heritage), has published the shortlisted works in categories A and B of the Award, in order to give visibility to a greater number of works and to recognize the optimum level of good heritage practice in Europe.

In particular, the international jury for category A -Intervention in Built Heritage-, comprising the architects Jorge Fontes, David Lorente and Marco Antonio Garcés, has chosen to shortlist the following 16 from the 202 projects presented:

With an increase of 25%, almost 300 projects presented and the consolidation of international participation, the successful fifth edition of the European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention is set to coincide with the celebration of its tenth anniversary.

Out of 16 projects an incredible 9 are in Spain – surely this is not equitable. There are no comparable projects in the UK, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Poland, Romania, Czechia, Croatia, etc? I would ask the judges to explain why the list is geographically so skewed towards Spain and southern Europe.
