Statement by architect Dimitri Waltritsch

Arch. Dimitri Waltritsch (Trieste) states that his home town shows only little feeling for contemporary architecture. In a survey it turned out that the most beloved buildings were (the habsburg castle) Miramare and the football stadium. Contemporary architecture is perceived as of low quality and therefore local architects are more likely to build outside of town. Furthermore the cooperation between construction companies and architects is not very well developed.

Dimitri Waltritsch speaking
On the other hand initiative have been taken to improve the situation and to influence the mechanics that govern the city. An example is the symposium 'trieste idea' about the urban quality in Trieste.
