A building designed by a Starchitect...rejected for the 13th time
It's taking me a lot of time, energy and frustation for this nomination. In my first request I thought it was an easily 5 stars nomination, many reason to do that, but everytime it's an unfair rejection.
In my city, the former swiss Starchitect Mario Botta designed this building named "La Casa dei Costruttori" (in english means "House of Builders") with the function to be the headquarters of the local associations of the builders, the architects and the engineers, also conferences are presented here. Another name given is "ANCE", a shorten version to indicate the association of builders.
Mario Botta is a very famous architect in the world, you can find him on Wikipedia and on many architectural publications. He had a brilliant career with several projects around the world and many awards won. I feel very lucky (as an architect student) to have one of his projects in my city.
ANCE is recognised and listed by Lombardy Region in the Culturale Heritage of the region.
There is a pedestrian walkaway that assures a safe access, the building is accessible from office workers, from external professionist registered to the associations, from other people who wants to partecipate to the conferences and from visitors who want to admire the structure. There is a plaque that proves the building is really the ANCE.
I have collected 13 rejections and I can't explain myself why, if I wouldn't know ANCE and if I would review it I'm sure I would be excited to approve it. Here some of the most rejection reason I have had: nomination does not meet acceptance criteria, generic store or restaurant (yes, you can find Mario Botta inside there while cooking pasta and tomatoes for customers), nomination appears to be on private residential property (it's not true, public access is guaranteed), nomination appears to have explicit or inappropriate activity (ANCE = Mario Botta's sexy shop, are you kidding me?), photo is low quality (a photo taken in a sunny day with no clouds and no shadows, with no presence of people and animals is low quality for reviewers), nomination appears to be a natural feature (the famous ANCE waterfalls...), it is not connected to a man-made object (excuse me are you serious?), nomination could not be confirmed to have an acceptable pedestrian pathway (there is a very large pedestrian pathway, can't you see it in the photo?).
I really don't know what to do in order to make ANCE accepted, I've tested with long and complete descriptions, short and essential descriptions, main photo to the building, main photo to the plaque, main photo in the court, links in support info, removing links, nothing works, it seems that my request is reviewed by monkeys.
