Double recognition for Italian architects

Schiattarella Associati received double recognition for the design of their Addiriyah Contemporary Art Center in Saudi Arabia.

The Rome-based architects were firstly named Concept Winner at the 2016 ICONIC AWARDS held by the German Design Council and also Honourable Mention at the American Architecture Prize (AAP) 2016.

According to the architects, the Center “fulfils the client’s need for a space where young Saudi art can express itself in 360 degrees.” Sited on a rocky escarpment which required several surveys, the building contains “labs for experimenting, small artist shelters and vast exhibition areas.”
