The work "PEDIATRIC CENTRE" of Emergency in Port Sudan
Opinion of the Jury
by Studio TAMASSOCIATI
is the WINNER
of the "Giancarlo Ius" Gold Medal"
to the most innovative work of architecture in the field of energy saving and innovative renewable energy technology
The project for the Pediatric Center for Emergency in Port Sudan tries to solve, with excellent results and good architecture, the main themes of contemporary challenges: how to make buildings that combine high comfort - especially in a children's hospital - with simple and cheap technologies, in places where the weather (and social) conditions are extreme, where energy and water are valuable assets. The winning project is a fine example of taking aesthetic, cultural and technical responsibility: it demonstrates the critical role of the architecture in responding to the needs of people and communities.
