The jury greatly appreciates the project’s social and spatial initiatives to strengthen communities and their environment in a politically troubled region of the world. Specifically valued is the intention to rehabilitate a historic site with minimal means and to revitalize a community through the provision of facilities for important daily activities – cooking, playing, gardening, etc.
