Regeneration of abandoned hill town wins Philip Webb Award


Marta Ascenso, a student at the Mackintosh School of Architecture, has been awarded first place in a design competition by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB). Ascenso’s scheme, which won the first prize of £1000, was said to “breathe new life” into the abandoned hill town of Craco in Basilicata, southern Italy, “re-animating it for both visitors and local people”. The SPAB’s Philip Webb Award aims to encourage and celebrate new design in the context of historic buildings. The judging panel, led by Oliver Wainwright, architec- ture critic at The Guardian, was impressed by entrants’ “enthusiasm to engage with challenging buildings – from ancient monuments to twentieth century concrete constructions,” and to see the potential in the “relatively humble, the architecturally modest and the utilitarian, whether military, industrial or commercial.” Ascenso said she was “very honoured” to have won the award. Explaining her


response to the competition brief, she remarked that her project “discusses the idea of ruins as a starting point to explore the town of Craco as an artefact of cultural and architectural identity.” The ruin is, in her words, “evocative, stimulat- ing thoughts of what was once there and what is to come.” She continued: “The site’s potential lies in the careful articulation of two aspects – to understand what is still relevant from the past and to imagine what could be appropriate in the future.” The scheme refrains from “trying to copy what’s already there,” neither does it “deny what the new has to offer”, but it searches for an “in between, a deliberate ambiguity that comes from interpreting tradition.” The SPAB reported that they were delighted to receive a record number of entries from students and graduates repre- senting 11 different schools of architecture across the country.
