ThyssenKrupp award winners announced

April 29 2009 saw the final Jury meeting of the ThyssenKrupp Elevator Architecture Award. Under the Presidency of Javier del Pozo Portillo, the final 62 projects were analysed and five finalists chosen.

2967 teams, with 4651 architects from 106 countries were admitted to participate in the Award. 926 projects were received by the organizers during the official reception period. During the first meeting of the Award, the Jury Members analysed all 926 projects, and approved 106 projects for the following stage. An on-line voting period was held where the architects chose their 10 preferred finalists, and from this process, 62 projects were selected. The last meeting was held on the 28th and 29th of April with the results just announced. Through successive voting processes, the number of projects was reduced to 20, then 10 and then five finalists. Following an extensive debate and analysis of the projects, the Jury decided that the last 10 projects have a merit and decided to award 5 projects as finalists:

First Prize - Dubai Frame by Fernando Donis. Dubai is a city full of emblems, rather than adding another one, the architect proposed to frame them all: to frame the city. Rather than building a massive structure, the purpose of this project is to build a void. This void of 150 meters by 105 meters will continuously frame the development of the current and future Dubai.

Second Prize - Magic Mirror by Luo Siwei. Acting as four representations: The Mirror of the City, The Mirror of Movement, The Mirror of Time and The Mirror of Water, the structure has the ability to entertain with water, snow and projected films onto water.

Third Prize - the remaining finalists were awarded joint third prize. They were The Flying colours of Dubai, Big Beam and The Mirage.
