The Prize “Sustainable Architecture” Fassa Bortolo is more than a simple competition. It is a way of spreading a new culture in the building sector with the twofold aim of creating a new and exclusive meeting point for professionals of the sector as well as making the work of planners and builders well-known, a work resulting from their continuous search for the best balance between the human being and the environment.
This initiative, which has been promoted by Fassa Bortolo – a leading company in the production of premixed plasters – and the Architecture Faculty of the University of Ferrara, aims at stimulating innovative solutions in the sector of bio-architecture. The prize will be awarded each year and is devoted to professionals and groups of architects and engineers who have implemented projects of sustainable architecture in the past five years.
Furthermore the edition 2007 of the Prize also includes a section devoted to neo-graduates , who can participate with their Degree Thesis. The application form must be sent by 31/12/2009, whereas the relevant papers – indicated under the section “Competition Notice” on the website – must be submitted by January 2010.
