|Summary||2nd International Award for Architecture Diploma|
The aim of these awards is to encourage architecture students to research and reflect on new patterns and approaches within the current cultural context. A prize will be awarded in each of the following areas:
- Transformation and instability in the city of today. The city: changes and mutations; the role played by the place. Architects and the city in the new IT economy. Landscape, new territories of opportunity. The simultaneous phenomena of de-localisation and renewed protagonism of the urban nuclei. Geographies beyond tomorrow.
- Inter-disciplinarity as a necessary basis for a new kind of working. Paradigms of diverse knowledge-sensibilities. Polyhedric ways of seeing. Responsible thinking in an ecological society: prefabrication and re-cycling. Low-cost and sustainability.
- Creativity and sources of inspiration, within the context of contemporary communications. The accumulation and digestion of information in the IT era. Plagiarism increase as a consequence of information overload. Where does originality now reside?
