A2M Social Housing, Nunzio Gabriele Sciveres, Italy

International Jury Motivation; A2M Social Housing, in Marina di Ragusa, is the best way to prove that  architect's talent can produce a high-quality solutionto a complex issue, in a nice anddifficult place. The project solves, with a refined design and with a thin, well-balanced composition, the challenge of building low-cost housings in a beautiful but often violated landscape. The architects of the awarded project faced with courage the task, producing accommodations of serene beauty which combine living-comforts with innovative solutions, compared to traditional social-housing. The authors developed together a small neighborhood whose contemporary aesthetics integrates well  in the traditional context. The project in Marina di Ragusa is not only a beautiful architecture in the sea of Sicily: it demonstrates responsible aesthetics and the importance of social and cultural aspects in the designing process. This project simply reaffirms that thought architecture can solve fundamental problems of contemporary living.
