"G. Ius" Gold Medal



The work "PEDIATRIC CENTRE" of Emergency in Port Sudan


is the WINNER
of the "Giancarlo Ius" Gold Medal"

to the most innovative work of architecture in the field of energy saving and innovative renewable energy technology

Opinion of the Jury:

The project for the Pediatric Center for Emergency in Port Sudan tries  to solve, with excellent results and good architecture, the main themes of  contemporary challenges: how to make buildings that combine high comfort - especially in a children's hospital - with simple and cheap technologies,  in places where the weather (and social) conditions are extreme, where energy and water are valuable assets. The winning project is a fine example of taking aesthetic, cultural and technical responsibility: it demonstrates the critical role of the architecture in responding to the needs of people and communities.
