Prof. Arch. Ettore Maria Mazzola, The University of Notre Dame, School of Architecture, Rome Studies Program, will be the recipient of the 2012 IMCL Conference International Urban Design Award, to be presented at the 49th IMCL Conference in Portland, OR, May 20-24, 2012.
Professor Mazzola’s work has consistently led the way in envisioning urban environments that celebrate community, and lift the spirit. His designs are hospitable for all, and show special concern for more vulnerable population groups, children, elders and the poor.
His project to replace a monolithic, low income housing block near Rome (Corviale) with a genuinely livable urban fabric, without disrupting the community, provides an exemplary model for urban renewal throughout the world. For more information, please see Regenerate suburban districts – proposal for the “ground-scraper” Corviale in Rome.
Professor Mazzola’s books include: The Sustainable City is Possible (2009); and Architecture and Town Planning, Operating Instructions, introduction by Léon Krier (2006). Please visit Professor Mazzola’s Profile.
The theme of the 49th IMCL Conference is Planning Healthy Communities for All, a theme that Professor Mazzola’s work perfectly exemplifies.
