Dear Mr/ Mrs,

We are pleased to present you the 3rd edition of The European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention AADIPA, a biennial contest organized with the support of COAC (Official Association of Architects of Catalonia) and AADIPA (Association of Architects for the Defence and Intervention in Architectural Heritage) the purpose of which is to distinguish patrimonial good practices and contribute to their disclosure.With 200 works from 26 affiliated countries registered in the previous edition, this new call persists in its goal of increasing participation and opening new territories. And the award aims to consolidate itself as a catalyst and observatory of new challenges added to the conservation and intervention in built heritage by the globalization of contemporary architecture

In the 3rd edition of the European Award for Architectural Heritage intervention AADIPA, all those  experts involved in the interdisciplinary heritage value chain –architects, historians, archaeologists ...– can participate in a contest, the registration period for which is open from December 2016 to April 2017 and that will end with the awards ceremony taking place in June 2017 in the city of Barcelona within the framework of the International Biennial of Architectural Heritage that is organized with the support of COAC, AADIPA and the Government of Catalonia.

The European Award for Architectural Heritage intervention led by Ramon Calonge, Oriol Cusidó, Marc Manzano, and Jordi Portal, architect members of the group AADIPA, part of the COAC, arises from the belief that in the current context, in which architectural heritage is considered not only to be a fundamental instrument of knowledge but also a first rate socio-economic resource for the sustainable development of the territory, the disclosure, distinction and recognition of works and quality projects contributing to the preservation of the collective memory is imperative.

With the conviction that the involvement of all is essential to boost the sector, preserve, study and promote our heritage and thanks in advance for any contribution in spreading of this third call that the institution you represent could provide us,
