With a view to developing and disseminating the teaching of Bruno Zevi and his method of critical and historical inquiry, The Bruno Zevi Foundation is holding an international competition to award a prize for a historical-critical essay offering an original analysis of an architectural work or theme or an architect of the past or present.
The competition is open to holders of research doctorates with experience in these fields:
