The prize has been for ten years place of debate among designers, clients, builders and enterprises. Unique of its kind, it celebrates the quality of architecture through the enhancement of the client's figure. The exhibit offers in this sense a wide international outline of what is happening worldwide in different scales, with the purpose to bring contemporary architecture close to outsiders, showing the visitors instead of drawings, often too technical, movies and plastic models, which can point at the dynamics of the complexity of work, planned to be lived by the persons dwelling in it, crossing it and working in it, etc..
Animated building and spaces, with the stories that generated them, starting from the idea of the client to the development of this idea by the architect, in a relationship where it is fundamental to be able listen to each other.
On the occasion of the five-hundred-years from the birth of Andrea Palladio, the exhibit, hosted in one of his most significant works, acknowledges the existence of the historic building and makes of it its contemporary background, a reference, a recall, partially concealed, partially visible. Superimposition and not impossible comparison. This is the meaning of a work putting a structure of industrial manner in an antique environment, with its colors, in a kind of giant serial order placed over to the existing one.
