Winners 2020

The shortlist


With 586 projects submitted almost as many architects participated at the 2020 Fritz Höger Award for Brick Architecture as there were participants at the last award 2017 – despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Fritz Höger Award for Brick Architecture, which was first awarded in 2008, takes place every three years and is one of the largest German architectural awards. It honors projects that use the potential of a traditional building material in a valid way to create special, remarkable and sustainable architecture.
