On November 27 in St. Petersburg the Awarding Ceremony took place for winners of the 2nd Golden Trezzini Awards for Architecture and Design with international participation.

The Awards named after Domenico Trezzini (1670—1734), the first St. Petersburg’s architect, has been taking place since 2018. The Awards is intended to scout for architectural, designer and restoration projects that in terms of artistic value can be regarded as works of art. The best projects are added to the collection of the State Museum of St. Petersburg History, the General Partner of the Awards.

During the Awarding Ceremony taking place in the Atrium of the Peter and Paul Fortress, the Awards winners were greeted by Vladimir Zapevalov, representative of Russia’s Ministry for Foreign Affairs in St. Petersburg; Vladimir Grigoriev, Chief Architect of St. Petersburg, Chairman of the Committee on Urban Planning and Architecture (KGA); Sergey Makarov, President of the Committee for State Supervision, Use and Protection of Cultural and Historical Memorials (KGIOP); Yunus Belet, Consul General of the Republic of Turkey in St. Petersburg; as well as other officials.

The 2nd Awards received 350 entries from over 50 cities and regions of Russia, Belorussia, Kazakhstan, Abkhazia, Great Britain, Latvia, UAE, Finland, and South Korea.

The works submitted by the participants were evaluated by 71 experts of the International Jury, chaired by Roger M. Kull, Consul General of Switzerland in St. Petersburg. The list of winners included 18 projects from basic categories and 17 projects from special categories. The voting results were checked and verified by Borenius law firm. 

“The winners were given the Golden Trezzini figurines, the key symbols of the Awards,” says Pavel Chernyakov, Chairman of the Arrangements Committee. “As for us, our main prize was the feedback on the Awards that we received from other regions of our country and even abroad. Despite the tight schedule, our winners managed to arrange their visits to St. Petersburg, to come to the Awarding Ceremony and to obtain their well-deserved figurines in person. We are infinitely grateful to our jurors, all the nominees, and partners of the Awards. With great interest, we expect even vaster geographic coverage next year.”
