First Florence Edition 2003
International Show Competition of Graduate Projects of Architectural Institutes and Faculties of Commonwealth Independent States
Palagio di Parte Guelfa, 3rd - 6th December 2003

  On proposal

of the Foundation, in co-operation with the Faculty of Architecture of Minsk (Beloruss), the Alderman of the International Relation of the City of Florence and the Faculty of Architecture in Florence, from the 3rd to the 6th of December was held in Florence, in Palagio di Parte Guelfa, a Show-Competition of International Diploma Projects of the students of Politechnics of the Community of the Independent States (C.I.S.).

More than 100 diploma projects were presented to the public (either on panels and projected on sequenze on video) divided in thematic area (Architecture and Dwelling Houses, Design, Architecture and Industrial Building, Architecture of Public Building, Town Planning, Theory of Architecture, Restoration of the Architectural Objects); an international jury (made up also with the participation docents of the Faculty of Architecture of Florence) has selected the most representant for each area that was prized by the Foundation.

The show-competition up to today has always been held in the C.S.I. area (last 21-29 September was held the XII edition in Penza-Russia); the Florentine edition is the first absolute in the world outside the C.I.S. area and for this reason it was thought by the Foundation as an occasion to contribute to the mutual knowledge, to the exchange, to the dialogue and to the professional exchange of studies and teaching among the academies and the participants faculties.
