Global Future Design Awards 2023-Chiesa Diruta Gold Winner
Our project Chiesa Diruta Concert Hall & Municipal Library has received the Gold Award at the Global Future Design Awards 2023! This design proposal has been submitted at the Reuse Italy Intenational Design Competition Call concerning the revitalization and reuse of the Renaissance monument located in Grottole, South Italy.
Chiesa Diruta is a catholic church built in Grottole (MT) in the 15th century, in order to host the local community of clergymen and to become one the most important churches of the bishopric. It suffered a lot of damages due to earthquakes, fires, and building issues so it was soon abandoned. Participants of this competition were asked to reuse this space as a Concert Hall.
Global Future Design Awards, established in 2016, is one of the world’s most prestigious awards for architecture, interior, and product design. It recognizes outstanding ideas that redefine architecture design through the implementation of novel technologies, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations along with studies on globalization, flexibility, adaptability, and the digital revolution. It is a forum that examines the relationship between architecture and the natural world, architecture, and the community, and the architects and the city.
