DETAIL is once again partnering with BAU 2015, the world's leading trade fair for architecture, materials and systems for the DETAIL Prize 2014.
Between 1 June 2014 and 31 July 2014, architects and planners can submit their realised projects online at www.detail.de. The DETAIL editorial team will then choose the best entries and present them to the jury and readers for the final selection.
The judges of DETAIL Prize 2014 are looking for architecturally-challenging, already completed projects that are characterised by innovative details in a coherent overall concept. Once again this year, the main sponsor of the DETAIL Prize is Josef Gartner GmbH.
For the last competition in 2012, architects from 45 countries submitted around 550 projects to the DETAIL editorial team. The top prize went to Lischer Partner Architekten Planer AG from Lucerne for ‘Residence Vitznau’. The ‘Platform of Arts and Creativity’ arts centre, designed by architects and engineers Pitágoras - Arquitectura e Engenharia Integradas from Guimarães in Portugal, was awarded the Readers' Prize.
The winner of the main prize, which is endowed with 5,000 euros, will be chosen by an internationally-renowned jury consisting of Werner Frosch (Henning Larsen Architects), DorteMandrup-Poulsen (DorteMandrupArkitekter), Enrique Sobejano (NietoSobejanoArquitectos), Gerhard Wittfeld (kadawittfeldarchitektur) and Valerio Olgiati. DETAIL readers and Internet users will also take part in the competition for the DETAIL Readers' Prize by voting online.
Both winners will be announced at the DETAIL Prize award ceremony in autumn 2014 in Berlin. The winning entries will be showcased at the BAU 2015 exhibition to be held in Munich in January.
