When it rains, it pours (awards)
Once again, in this year’s Fritz Höger Brick Award for Architecture round there were participants who also impressed the jury of Ziegelpreis 2021. The “Deutsche Ziegelpreis” is a German brick award that honors outstanding architectural and building art in regard to their energy-efficiency and design. Four out of forty-eight FHP-award winners were twice successful: from refurbished “Gründerzeit” buildings to modern company headquarters.
No other award for brick receives as much international attention as the Fritz Höger Award for Brick Architecture. A total of 568 projects from around the world competed in 2020. The 48 Winners have once again led the impressive proof that brick really does make great things possible in building. See for yourself!
The winners of the Fritz Höger Award 2020 have been announced. Our congratulations go to the award-winning participants. We would like to express our sincere thanks for the personal insights into the architect's offices with their teams and the impressions of the festivities.
Now it's official: the best brick projects have made it from the shortlist to the podium of the Fritz Höger Award 2020 for Brick Architecture. This year not only bronze awards were a novelty: For the first time two projects were awarded the Grand Prix. Both the Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts in Lausanne by Barozzi / Veiga and the Nakasone House detached property in Mexico City by the architect Escobedo Soliz completely convinced the judges and were accordingly honoured with the highest award.
