Ischia International Architecture Award


From July 8 to 13 Ischia becomes one of the international capitals of architecture. Comes back, in fact, PIDA, Ischia International Architecture Award, now in its sixth edition. “Today - say the organizers - the architectures of hospitality are times of challenge and confrontation between the designers and architects around the world.

Design Hotel, Love Hotel, SPA Hotel, Boutique Hotel, Art Hotel, Leisure Hotel, Resort Hotel, are just some of the issues that increasingly are tied to the fashions of times and explain the complexity in designing and building a hotel today. From this reflection takes the name the current edition, “Hotel Lifestyle Means”.
This year’s program is particularly rich and varied, with some new features compared to previous editions. The focal point is the delivery of the prize Ischia International Architecture, which provides cash awards, software licenses and publications. There are two main sections established: hotels (hotels, farm holidays, room and boards) and SPA (Thermal baths, Spa Gardens, Beauty Farms, Beauty Centres). Prizes will be awarded both the architectural works completed and documented, for the “PIDA prize” and those referring to design, for the “PIDA Concept prize”. The works can relate to the creation of new architecture or recovery, rehabilitation and expansion of existing buildings. From this year it has been added a section dedicated to the 3D virtual world, the “PIDA thinks 3D prize”. In addition to international competition, the event will be accompanied by exhibitions, lectures and debates, which will be organized during the evenings on July 11 to 13 in the most prestigious locations on the island, and by the design workshop on the new archaeological museum of Villa Arbusto in Lacco Ameno (Ischia), and at the Suite with SPA.
These meetings are open to young students and graduates from all over the world and are characterized by an interdisciplinary approach, with the presence of expert tutors who will have lessons in design, upgrading the energy efficiency, ecology and other aspects of the project. The architecture and well-being lessons are one of the novelties of this edition. On July 12 and 13 will be organized day guided trips in order to discover and appreciate the beauty of the island. The Ischia International Architecture Prize is organized by PIDA with the collaboration of the Architects of Naples and HSDesign.
