Architects and architecture firms working in Europe are now invited to submit their realised projects for the »best architects 18« Award. The entry deadline is 29 May 2017, and all those who submit their projects by 3 April 2017 will receive an early bird discount on the entry fee.
The »best architects« Award is one of the most prestigious distinctions for architecture and a barometer of the latest developments in the top segment of the field. The award is widely recognised as a seal of quality for outstanding architectural achievements, positioning the award-winners at the forefront of the international architecture scene.
Judging the works submitted for the »best architects« Award this year will be a jury of three prominent architects, which will include for the first time a member from Japan, the internationally acclaimed architect Sou Fujimoto (Sou Fujimoto Architects, Tokyo). The other jury members are Prof. Verena von Beckerath (Heide & von Beckerath, Berlin, Germany) and Prof. Ingemar Vollenweider (jessenvollenweider architektur, Basel, Switzerland). They will together select the best projects in the categories residential buildings, office and administrative buildings, commercial and industrial buildings, educational buildings, public buildings, other buildings and interior design.
The application documents must be submitted solely online at www.bestarchitects.de. There is no postal delivery required (the project sheets will be printed by the organiser).
About the »best architects« Award
The »best architects« award was created in 2006 to filter out the best and most interesting architecture projects the German-speaking countries have to offer in order to present them to a broad, interested public. In 2015 the award competition was opened up to participants Europe-wide.
The award is conferred each year on completed architecture projects in the categories residential, office and administrative buildings, commercial and industrial buildings, public buildings, other buildings and interior design that are distinguished by outstanding architectural quality.
An independent jury of prominent architects awards the best architects label and the best architects in gold label for exceptional quality. The goal is to engage in a substantive discourse with the interested public and to foster architectural culture.
