Alberto Bottero, Simona Della Rocca and Valeria Bruni take first place in Venice Cityvision Competition


The results of the Venice Cityvision Competition have been announced. CITYVISION competition is an international ideas competition, which challenges architects, engineers, designers, students and creative individuals to develop visionary urban proposals with the intention of stimulating and supporting the contemporary city. Through innovative ideas and methodologies, which can improve the connection between the historical, present and future city, CITYVISION aims to foster a critical evolution of architectural historiography.

The objective of the competition is to drive the imagination, by the use of new materials, echo-technologies, parametric software and territorial organisations for a future vision of the city. The Judging Panel of the 2011 edition was composed by leaders of the architecture and design fields: 4 members and a presiding president including BJARKE INGELS (BIG Architects) Copenhagen / New York Jury President; NERI OXMAN (Material Ecology) New York; ELENA MANFERDINI (Atelier Manferdini) Los Angeles; MARIA LUDOVICA TRAMONTIN (Università di Cagliari) Cagliari; BOSTJAN VUGA (Sadar Vuga) Ljubljana. The Jury selected a first and a second prize and 11 honorable mentions.

The first place (2000€) was awarded to Alberto Bottero, Simona Della Rocca, Valeria Bruni. The second place was awarded to Onorato di Manno (Group Leader), Lorenzo Catena, Francesco Cusani, Flavio Graviglia. The FARM special prize (1000€) was awarded to the group composed by Ada Bartkowska, Marek Ejsztet, Michał Kulesza, Piotr Matuszek, Tomasz Tymiński, EwaZwierzchowskia, Jaroslaw Szewczyk.
