The Wilmotte Foundation renews for 2008 the W Award competition. The competition endeavours to consciously encourage the importance of preserving European heritage and its evolution in a contemporary world by the idea of an architectural 'graft'.

The competition is aimed at students and newly qualified young European architects. The theme of this year's competition is to requalify a site of a water tower in Latina Italy, a recent heritage, which has to be integrated into an urban, landscaped setting.

The 2008 competition theme
The site of a water tower from the 1970's, is to be requalified. A new office building of 2000m² envisaged will provide an opportunity for candidates to write a new chapter on the 'architectural graft', the foundation's key interest.

This year's theme is beyond the traditional pattern, it is rooted in the recent heritage of the twentieth century and open to participants of the prospects for interesting designs.

Participant conditions Individual entries architectural profile or by team of two. Open to students and newly qualified architects, after the 31st of December 2004, qualified in the European Union and Switzerland.
