The Municipality of Sutrio is working on a strategic project, with the idea of implementing the redevelopment of the village and its surroundings. The main goal includes the preservation of the historical heritage and the arrangement of the existing internal street network, but mainly concerns the recovery of existing buildings. Most of them have already been restored thanks to the project '"Albergo diffuso" (“Hotel network”).
Sutrio is known as "il pais dai marangons" (“the carpenters village”) and it is obvious that timber should always have been considered the main material in each of its redevelopment project.
Timber thus became the main theme of all activities to look through innovation and technology to track the routes of our development.
As a result of the projects of recovery and restoration, Sutrio now looks like a beautiful historic village; the entrance of the village instead shows the need for conversion planning interventions. In fact, at the time of the economic boom a series of buildings has been built for the production and sale of wood furniture, which is now considered as an archeological industrial area that needs to be recovered for other uses.
For these reasons, the Municipality of Sutrio opens the following announcement for a Competition of ideas aimed at redesigning the entrance of the village, now unfortunately reduced to a degraded area. This idea was born in order to implement the professional distinctive offer during the international architectural symposium, which the furniture industry and wooden buildings constructors are interested, and moreover to give the possibility to the new generations of students and / or professionals UNDER 30 to express their talent in the redesign of this urban space.
