and Preservation” Award is characterised by the strongly supranational flavour of the

The Panel of Judges reached a unanimous decision, drawing attention to the various
projects for their specific quality and conformity to the competition criteria: “architectural
restoration projects which have sensitively interpreted the principles of conservative
restoration […] possibly using contemporary forms of expression”.
These criteria were given different interpretations and connotations by each participant,
with consistently interesting projects in harmony with the existing context, following an
approach sometimes strictly conservative, sometimes more innovative, with the necessary
and often essential openness to the contribution of the architecture of our time.
Similarly, in the “Projects Developed as Degree Theses” section, the judges considered
favourably participants who demonstrated an ability to consciously combine the principles
of the discipline on different scales, from individual monuments to urban aggregations
and themes associated with landscape restoration.
