German Design Award // Special 2016 // Winner
STATEMENT OF THE JURY
[ Mårten Claesson, Dr. Michael Peters, Stefan von Terzi ]
The basic values for the Winner Forum are: precision, sustainability, energy efficiency and effectiveness as well as being durable, low-maintenance, well-integrated, timeless and of good quality. The building, in retreat from the streetscape, takes some space for itself. The sharply-contoured building has a randomly-arranged fibreglass concrete façade that stretches over the building like scaly skin. --------- The chosen division emphasises the structure‘s vertical lines. An interesting design whose clear and functional form creates a single harmonious unit.
