Resolution of the 2020 training Apprenticeship with Antonio Gandano
Antonio Gandano has been awarded the 2020 Richard H. Driehaus Building Arts Award in the category of finishes and other works of traditional construction.
The coordination team of the Richard H. Driehaus Building Arts Awards, with the guidance and advice of the master thatcher Antonio Gandano, has studied with great interest the 54 applications submitted for the training grant in the tradition of the craft.
Among the many candidates whose interest and motivation made them worthy of this apprenticeship, it has finally been decided to award it to Adrián Vega, from Arcos de la Frontera.
The objective of these Awards is to recover the building arts as they are responsible for the conservation of our Heritage and fundamental for new traditional constructions.
Unfortunately, these professions are on the verge of extinction and that is why the Richard H. Driehaus decided to create these awards to promote the continuity of the work of those masters and transmit it to the new generations, with the help of an annual grant.
