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 7 categories that are distinguished by outstanding architectural quality. A distinguished international jury of prominent architects awards the best architects label and the best architects in gold label for exceptional quality.
With an ever-increasing number of submissions of extremely high quality, the award has developed into an important event on the architecture scene. Due not least to the showcase publication, which extensively documents all the winning projects, the award offers potential clients valuable guidance and makes an important contribution to the discourse on building culture. The award gives the recognised architects and architecture firms a mark of distinction in the market while positioning them at the forefront of the international architecture scene.
