A pleasing shower of prizes received our projects at this year’s Architizer A+ Awards in New York. Out of four buildings that were qualified for the final round, three were honoured with the desired awards. In each category, one jury prize and one audience prize were awarded. Especially the project «The Twist – Kistefos Museum» was well received, which was awarded in two categories at the same time. It won both awards in the category “Cultural Buildings – Galleries and Exhibition Rooms” and the jury prize in the final round of the category “Concepts – Plus-Architecture+Engineering”. Both the Musée Atelier Audemars Piguet (Museum Buildings) and the Amager Resource Centre aka “Copenhill” (Commercial-Factories & Warehouses) achieved the audience award.
We are particularly pleased with the good results in the public voting. We consider the positive vote of the Architizer A+ Awards community to be valuable evidence of the successful realisation of the buildings and their appreciation among users, visitors and architecture enthusiasts.
At all the three projects, Lüchinger+Meyer facade planners were involved alongside the architects of BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group, as well our structural engineers in the planning of the Audemars Piguet museum building.
The Architizer A+Awards is the largest awards programme that focuses on promoting and honouring the best architecture of the year. Its mission is to foster the appreciation of sensible architecture in the world.
