Manduria Architecture Competition

English text:

“I am glad to announce that NAUTA’s proposal “the Urban Puzzle” won the second prize in the international architecture competition for the “Sustainable city for kids” in Manduria (Italy).

The jury expressed huge appreciation for the accuracy, creativity and innovation of our project, thoug awarding with the first prize a traditional “no risk” project (judjement emerging from the the jury’s report itself).
Once more quality and research for excellence have to suffer the mediocrity of the system.
We are proud to share with all of you this event which for us remains a big success, confident of the real excellence of our proposal.

We consider as well events like this an opportunity to debate with our collegues over the current “competitions” system, which more and more is threatening our work, leaving it at the mercy of the case and the decision of sometimes unprofessional judges which have no knowledge about contemporary architecture and urbanism, sometimes even corrupted ones…
This system threatens as well the international debate and growth of research and innovation, spreading a general culture of mediocrity, blocking any progress of our discipline.”

NAUTA’s team for this competition: Maurizio Scarciglia, Alessandro Chiccoli, Valeria Doro, Igor Lusardi, Lisa Troiano
Logopedics consultant: Cristina Torreri
artistic consultant and graphic design: Sabine Heine (www.heinewelt.de)

NAUTA has been as well shortlisted for Europan 10 _ location Wien, Austria, with the project “Heidi and Carrie”:

Italian text:

“Sono lieto di annunciare che il nostro progetto “Il Puzzle Urbano” ha vinto il secondo premio per il concorso “La citta’ sostenibile per i bambini” a Manduria, Italia.

La giuria, dopo aver espresso grande apprezzamento per il progetto che NAUTA ha proposto, elogiandone completezza, innovazione, acuratezza, ha insignito con il primo premio un progetto tradizionale che non prevede “rischi” (giudizio emergente dallo stesso verbale della commissione).
Ancora una volta la qualita’ e la ricerca di eccellenza soffrono la mediocrita’ del sistema.
Siamo fieri di condividere con voi questo evento che per noi rimane un grande successo, sicuri della grande qualita’ della nostra proposta.
Consideriamo inoltre eventi come questo un’ opportunita’ per discutere con tutti i nostri colleghi sullo stato attuale del sistema “concorsi”, che sempre piu’ sta minacciando il nostro lavoro, lasciandolo in balia del caso e della decisione di giudici che spesso non hanno alcuna conoscenza dei temi dell’ architettura e dell’ urbanistica contemporanea, talvolta giudici corrotti…
Questo sistema minaccia inoltre il dibattito internazionale e la crescita della ricerca ed innovazione per la nostra disciplina, diffondendo una generale cultura della mediocrita’.
