European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention AADIPA


The European Award for Architectural Heritage intervention AADIPA, a biennial contest organized with the support of COAC (Architects' Association of Catalonia) and AADIPA (Association of Architects for the Defence and Intervention in Architectural Heritage), the purpose of which is to distinguish quality interventions in heritage and contribute to their dissemination, opens the registration period of its 4th edition.
The Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention AADIPA’s 4th call, addressed to professionals related to interventions in architectural heritage –architects, historians, archaeologists ...–, opens its online registration on Monday, December 17, 2018 and will remain open until April 5, 2019. Any completed work, carried out or published in the European geographical area during the period between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2018. 
In the 4th edition, one of the award's latest developments is to increase the number of works selected as finalists. Thus, in category A, the jury will make a selection of up to 15 and in B, a maximum of 10, from which, in both cases, will emerge an award-winner and three finalists; on the other hand, in categories C and D, there will be one winner and three finalists. With this new formula, the Award management is committed to giving visibility to a greater number of works and recognizing the optimum level of good heritage practice in Europe. In addition, from all the work presented, the award management, will concede for the first time a Special Restoration Award to the intervention that from a technical and methodological point of view stands out for its quality, precision and respect.
