It is worth noting that, besides the architectural quality, selection has taken into account construction costs and assignment criteria, to ensure that a real social purpose is fulfilled by the projects. In a time were the definition of social housing is unclear and necessarily diverse from country to country, the Ugo Rivolta European Award aims at recognising the efforts of public administrations, foundations, cooperatives or even private subjects that together with architects are engaged in filling the gap between residential market and social services with affordable and high quality housing.
