Brescia, May 26, 2022 – The jury of the 22nd edition of the “International Design Competition” met to declare the winners of the METRA Building event, operating in the production and distribution of systems for windows, doors, entrance doors, curtain walls, balconies, interior doors and partitions. The initiative is aimed at rewarding the professionals – designers and window and door manufacturers – authors of the best realisations made with METRA Building products, a company present with production sites and representative offices in Europe and North America.
The jury examined the works of the 72 participating realisations, coming not only from Italy, but also from eight foreign countries (Croatia, India, England, Iceland, Panama, the United States, Spain and Switzerland) on the basis of different evaluation criteria. The guidelines analysed were: compositional quality of architectural design, integration with the context and innovation and articulation of technical solutions. Three categories of realisations were admitted to the competition: restorations and conservative reconditioning, renovations, extensions; new constructions in the residential sector; new constructions in the tertiary sector/public buildings.
“The International Design Competition is an appointment that holds deep meanings for METRA Building,” declares Ettore Bonetti, Group Sales and Marketing Director of METRA Building. “By analysing national and foreign realisations with the proximity of professionals operating in different spheres, we interpret the potential of our products, highlighting their aesthetic profiles, but also their function and environmental sustainability. These themes embody the very principles that guide us in the research and development of our Systems. The value of this competition is, moreover, well described by its longevity; we have started, at the beginning of the new millennium, a tradition that maintains the energy to renew itself in each edition. To award a prize to one of our customers is to win with them, consolidating the valuable partnership relationship”.
The jury of the ‘International Design Competition’ confirms the presence of professionals from the sector, but also from the academic world, marketing and national information. METRA Building CEO Enrico Zampedri, Group Sales and Marketing Director Ettore Bonetti, Giovanni Bertucci, Group R&D Technical Director, and Engineering & Certification Manager Andrea Mafezzoni will be assessing the quality and compliance with the evaluation criteria. The university world is represented by Politecnico Engineering School in Milan lecturers Elisabetta Ginelli, full professor of Architectural Technology, Emilio Pizzi, full professor of Technical Architecture and designer, accompanied by Building & Design architect Nadia Andreis.
The jury is completed with professionals from the marketing, communication and information sectors. In attendance were the deputy editor of the daily newspaper “Il Giornale di Brescia”, Anna Masera, Ennio Braicovich, columnist of the specialised portal “Guida Finestra”, the General Manager of “Gruppo WISE”, a marketing and integrated communication company, Erica Danesi.
The awarding of prizes to the winners of the 2022 edition of ‘Concorso d’Autore’ will take place next October at an ad hoc event.
