11/20/2014 Stefano and his team won the ‘International Highrise Award’ for the ‘Bosco Verticale’ in Milan. The prize is assigned every two years to the ‘most beautiful and innovative high-rise in the world’. It is promoted by the Frankfurt Museum of Architecture (DAM), the City of Frankfurt and DekaBank.
We made a piece on ‘Bosco Verticale’ for nano/3sat last year and we are very happy that this important prize was awarded to Stefano. You’ll find more information on our segment here. It is still online on the 3sat webpage.
The jury of the DAM judged over 800 high-rise buildings across the world. On the short list were ‘De Rotterdan’ in Rotterdam, produced by Rem Koolhaas’ ‘Office for Metropolitan Architecture’ (OMA) ; ‘One Central Park’ in Sydney, ‘Renaissance Barcelona Fira Hotel’ in Barcelona, both produced by Ateliers Jean Nouvel of Paris; ‘Sliced Porosity Block’ in Chengdu, China, produced by Steven Holl Architects of New York.
