PRIX DE ROME WEBSITE PAGE

ACRE AWARDED 2018 PRIX DE ROME

Acre Architects is pleased to announce that we have been awarded The 2018 Professional Prix de Rome in Architecture, on our proposal for Shaping Cultural Identity: Tourism Frameworks Creating Cultural Sustainability in Atlantic Canada, Southwestern United States & Norway. The Prix de Rome in Architecture is awarded to practitioners whose built work demonstrates exceptional artistic potential in the field.

The Prix de Rome is an opportunity for the Acre to experience firsthand world renown projects, places and key people that have succeeded in creating a sustainable tourism that enhances a sense of place, including its environment, its heritage, its aesthetics, its culture, and the well-being of the people who live there. There is an appetite in the Maritimes to go beyond the sentimental pseudo-traditional recreated environments, complete with landlocked imitation lighthouses, and to explore new ways to guide the perception of a region toward more meaningful development. We want to be part of shaping an architectural history that bears witness to our era and its richly diverse ambitions, and this requires specialization and currency in learning from successful tourism precedents that serve to forge new ways forward.
