The German architecture trade journal DBZ (Deutsche BauZeitschrift) and the Association of German Master Builders, Architects, and Engineers (BDB), Berlin, again call for submissions for the Balthasar Neumann Award 2018. Participate now!
May the best team win: The German architecture trade journal DBZ (Deutsche BauZeitschrift) and the Association of German Master Builders, Architects, and Engineers (BDB), Berlin, again call for submissions for the Balthasar Neumann Award 2018. It is the eleventh time that the prize is awarded to a team for outstanding achievements in integral planning. The award highlights how different disciplines have cooperated in an exemplary and innovative manner and far exceeding established engineering standards, to construct a building, which, as a result of this cooperation, exhibits extraordinary qualities in terms of architecture and engineering – entirely in line with Balthasar Neumann’s intentions. In 2014, a concept for energy and sustainability was added as a requirement to the two existing criteria architecture and structure.
That was also true in 2016 for the “The Catholic Trial Church St Trinitatis Leipzig” by the architects Schulz and Schulz Architekten, Leipzig, who won the Balthasar Neumann Prize 2016.
In 2018, like in previous years, all three disciplines of the winning team will be awarded in equal measure, and also the building developer of the project submitted will be recognized.
The Balthasar Neumann Award 2018 carries a value of 10,000 €. The deadline for submissions is February 2nd, 2018 (the date postmark is valid).
Only architects and engineers with offices in a European country are eligible for participation. The building submitted as a project, however, can be located either in a European or a non-European country. Completion of the works may not date back longer than two years.
