Five winners announced in writing competition on architecture hosted by the Henning Larsen Foundation

In February 2012, the Henning Larsen Foundation launched an international competition for writing about architecture under the theme ‘TIME & SPACE’. On Henning Larsen’s birthday, 20 August, the names of the winners were officially announced. The first prize winner received an award of €10,000, the second prize winner of €5,000 and the three third prize winners of each €2,000.

First prize went to Nathan Romero Muelas for ‘The Wash House’. The winning text is a classic essay. The jury writes: “A personal, experienced voice takes us back to a place that no longer exists but as a recollection still gives meaning. A place ‘from the time before the washing machine’ which in the writer’s description becomes the space of architecture par excellence, the place where people meet around an everyday function that would not exist without the physical framework provided by architecture.”

Daniel Persson received second prize. Sanne Flyvbjerg, Mette Marie Kallehauge and Tinne Delfs each receive a third prize. The jury has evaluated the submitted texts on the basis of their description of space and spatiality and whether they offer something new to the genre – writing about architecture. The jury consisted of Professor, architect Henning Larsen; CEO, architect Kent Martinussen; Chief Editor, architect Martin Keiding; architecture writer, historian of ideas Christian Bundegaard and architect Troels Troelsen.
