Gabriele Basilico Prize→
Prize in Architecture and Landscape Photography
The Gabriele Basilico Prize for Architecture and Landscape Photography, created in 2015, was set up by the Ordine degli Architetti della Provincia di Milano, the Archivio Gabriele Basilico and the Fondazione Studio Marangoni. It is supported by private companies and sponsored by Italian, European and US institutions.
The Prize is awarded biennially and seeks to continue the dialogue between the work of Gabriele Basilico and the next generation of young photographers, fostering their enquiry on an international level.
The theme of the prize -- architecture and landscape -- is very broadly defined to give space to the many methods and artistic languages present on the contemporary scene. It embraces historic and contemporary architecture, the
landscapes of metropolises, cities, provinces, urbanized territories, new buildings, industrial archaeology, and interiors.
