European Prize for Urban Public Space Special Mention
Very honoured with the special mention granted by the European Prize for Urban Public Space for the Kanunnik Triest Sqaure in the Caritas Psychiatric Centre.
The special mention finally recognises that 1) the psychiatric centre in Melle is part of the urban, and 2) the Kan. Triest Square actually is a square !
Somewhere between a closed building and open space, an old psychiatric hospital pavilion has been partially saved from demolition to offer a peaceful refuge for patients, their families, and people walking in the public park surrounding it.
The European Prize for Urban Public Space edition 2018 goes to the renovation of Skanderbeg Square in Tirana, Albania by 51N4E.
