Details Prize - english

Special “Barbara Cappochin” Prize for the management of detailed architectural and construction elements.


Winner: Architects Atelier Ryo Abe


The Jury broadly agreed upon the choice of this work that demonstrates how the vision of a project combined with skilled technical ability can find solutions to habitat, functionality and environmental issues, through the design of a construction detail.

This non-invasive project displays a high level of sensitivity towards its surrounding environment. It was designed as a low-cost project that could be built with limited technical and human resources, however this aspect does not detract in any way from the poetic and aesthetic qualities of the work, that serve to strengthen its identity.

The simplicity of the design is a fresh way of interpreting traditional techniques combined with contemporary forms and technologies thanks to the reuse of existing resources.
