Launch of the X Din l-Art Helwa Architectural Heritage Award Scheme2014

The X Din l-Art Helwa Architectural Heritage Award Scheme for 2014 is now open for entries.  The Award Scheme is an initiative set up by the organisation to encourage architectural excellence in a Maltese context, the rehabilitation and reuse of old buildings, and the recognition of the dedicated work of those active in the field of restoration.   The Scheme is carried out with the support of the Kamra tal-Periti.

Eligible projects include the restoration or conservation of buildings, the adaptation of buildings to new uses, building additions or alterations, or new building projects in conservation areas. The projects can relate either to a single building, a complex of buildings, or to a historic urban environment or townscape. The project will be judged on the quality of the work executed, its historic, cultural, educational and social relevance, the preliminary research conducted and the aesthetic and visual merit. The project may be on a scale ranging from small to large, and should display a standard of work which would be outstanding in a Maltese context.

Submissions for the X Din l-Art Helwa Architectural Heritage Award Scheme should be for projects completed in the last year up to the 31st August, 2014.  Submissions must be received at Din l-Art Helwa, 133 Melita Street, Valletta by the 10 October, 2014.  More information about the Award Application and Registration forms are available from the Kamra tal-Periti, or from the Din l-Art Helwa office.   For further information please call 21 220358/21 225952. Application and Registration forms can also be downloaded from here and here

BULWARKS OF FORTITUDE

All the paintings exhibited are the personal expression of artist Janet Grech who, fascinated by Malta’s architectural heritage, has depicted some of our fortresses capturing them from various inusual perspectives.  Janet has chosen the Wignacourt 17th Century Tower for her exhibition and is generously contributing to share proceeds from sales of her work with Din l-Art Ħelwa in favour of the conservation of these historic sites. The exhibition will be open for the general public from Saturday 31st May to Saturday 14th June, at Wignacourt Tower, St Paul’s Bay. 20140531_185608
