Philippe Rotthier Competition
Philippe Rotthier European Prize
If renovating an old and disused building, rotting in degeneration and thus blotting the urban landscape, is not a fulfilling and rewarding project in itself, then perhaps the prospect of winning 30,000 euros could make the venture seem even more worthwhile.
For more than a quarter of a century the legendary architect Philipe Rotthier has explored Europe’s diverse and dynamic architecture intent on finding new structural designs that venerates the character of the urban landscape it is situated, respects ecology, is kind to the planet wasting neither space nor energy and that ascertain a link between a building’s history and the contemporary yearnings for luxury and comfort.
