European architectural Competition
The Wilmotte Foundation renews for 2008 the W Award competition. The competition endeavours to consciously encourage the importance of preserving European heritage and its evolution in a contemporary world by the idea of an architectural graft.
The competition is aimed at students and newly qualified young European architects. The theme of this years competition is to requalify a site of a water tower in Latina Italy, a recent heritage, which has to be integrated into an urban, landscaped setting.
The prizes and burseries are deliberated by an international jury, composed of professionals, architects , artists and well known journalists.
The 2008 competition theme
The site of a water tower from the 1970s, is to be requalified. A new office building of 2000m² envisaged will provide an opportunity for candidates to write a new chapter on the architectural graft, the foundation’s key interest.
