After considering all the projects, jury decided that awards go to:

International 2019 Piranesi Award goes to:
Neue Galerie und Kasematten / Neue Bastei, Wiener Neustadt, Austria, 2019
Architect: Bevk Perović
 
The scheme successfully integrates the new building with the old. This is achieved through carefuly weaving routes through the two and developing a sophisticated relationship of scales. In addition the project provides  a richly contextual response, developing an expressive architecture that at times suggests contrast, but is also in part inspired by the existing brick vaulting.

International 2019 Piranesi Honorable Mention
Ranovation of the Main Square in Novo mesto, Slovenia, 2019
Architect: Atelier arhitekti
 
The project covers a very large ground area, but is executed with an unfussy simplicity that shows both restraint and maturity. The space has been reclaimed from car use and its civic qualities drawn to the fore, such that the town now has a shared space for public life.
 
International 2019 Piranesi Honorable Mention
Chiostri di San Pietro – San Pietro Cloisters, Reggio Emilia, Italia, 2019
Architects: ZAA Zamboni Associati Architettura
 
The project boldy counterpoints the existing masonry building with a delicacy and a lightness of touch in the detailing.
The private space of the monastery has been made public, but developed with a simplicity wholly appropriate to the serenity of the existing structures.
 
International 2019 Piranesi Student Honorable Mention
Architecture of mind: Conceptual design of the University Psychiatric clinic Ljubljana – Polje, UL FA, EMŠ Architecture, Ljubljana, Master thesis, 2018
Student: Rok Staudacher; Menthor: assoc. prof. Tomaž Krušec
 
The jury was positive about both the maturity and the comprehensiveness of the project. The scheme develops a constructional language that is developed through a series of external and internal spaces, subtly shifting to suit the various conditions, whilst maintaining a coherence throughout. The student asks what might a relevant healing architecture be, and leaves an open-ended query as to where this might lead that the judges comended.
