Attend the 10th public presentation of the Foundation Award at Swissbau! This festive occasion not only honours three of Switzerland’s architects’ offices with the most promising futures but, this year, is also giving young architects a platform at Swissbau that will enable them to speak about their hopes and dreams. In short: where they currently see the most urgent need for action. Switzerland’s sole prize to promote architecture aims to highlight the challenging situation faced by young offices in Switzerland.
The prize, which honours not only a project but also an attitude, is now a fixed feature in the calendar of young architects. In the ten years since it was launched, the prize has helped numerous offices to find their place in the architecture landscape of German-speaking Switzerland. The sponsors of the award are software distributor ComputerWorks, architecture platform swiss-architects.com, Swiss online culture broadcaster art-tv.ch, hardware manufacturer HP, the S AM Schweizerisches Architekturmuseum, the Swissbau trade fair and Hochparterre.
A reception, to which all visitors are invited after the celebration, provides an opportunity for discussions with prize winners, representatives of the sponsors and members of the jury.
Location: Hall 2.0, Foyer
