Description
The Prize was created to remember Barbara and what she left us during her 22 years of life through the understanding of the deep and intimate connection existing between architecture and everyday life.
The purpose of the Prize is to bring out the centrality and responsibility of architecture in the process of landscape modification.
It focuses its attention on urban outskirts and on the use of bio-architecture, energy efficiency and sustainable urban planning.
The prize selects and awards the works dealing with urban regeneration and environmental development, with the highest quality in different fields, including environmental quality, (both sensorial and emotional), attention to the human scale, innovative design and construction, appropriate use of materials and structures, study of constructive details, combination of aesthetic and quality, functionality and sustainability.
The Prize and the International Conferences, which are the most important events of the VII° edition of the Barbara Cappochin Biennial, all meditate on the connection that strongly links the quality of life to the quality of architecture.
