THE BAERWALDBAD - CONSERVATION OF A PUBLIC BATH HOUSE THROUGH VOCATIONAL TRAINING

2010

GRAND PRIX

The prize awarded to this project recognises the exceptional achievement of a rich social project which synchronised a socially vulnerable population with an architectural project of great worth. By revealing forgotten cultural influences and by training young people with the techniques of restoration, this project allowed a strong cultural reclaim of elements forgotten by previous generations, thus showing the way to safeguard historical inheritance in harmony with the social evolution which must be engaged in by modern European cities. It also afforded the participants an enriching opportunity to integrate both socially and professionally.
