Date: 14 May 2020
Andrew Stone, Head of School at The Cass has joined the international expert panel on the jury for the 2020 Golden Trezzini Awards for Architecture and Design.
The main objective of the awards, whose motto is ‘architecture is art’ is to acknowledge and promote architectural and designer projects which can be referred to as artwork in terms of the artistic value. Their wider mission is to establish a new expert community that will bring together architectural, design, renovation and museum professionals along with diplomatic, business, media, state, and academic representatives, and people of art.
Entries for 20 nominations of the Third Golden Trezzini are being accepted till 15 October 2020 and participation is free of charge. Nominees (and projects) are welcome from anywhere in the world from developers and planners, architects and renovators, designers and interior decorators, as well as students of architecture schools and departments.
The winners will be awarded with Golden Trezzini figurines and diplomas during a ceremony which will take place at Belmond Grand Hotel Europe, St Petersburg, on 1 December 2020.
The Golden Trezzini Awards for Architecture and Design is named after Domenico Trezzini (1670—1734), the first architect of St. Petersburg, born in Switzerland. The Awards has been taking place since 2018, supported by the Representative Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation in St. Petersburg, the Embassy of Russia in Switzerland, the Embassy of Switzerland in Russia, the Consulate General of Switzerland in St. Petersburg and a number of other organisations and institutions in the City.
