Architecturally innovative brickwork rewarded

Wienerberger AG, the world's largest brick producer and the largest roof tile manufacturer in Europe, last night handed out its annual Brick Awards, together with 21,000 Euros in prize money. Two hundred and sixty projects from 32 countries were submitted by architecture critics for this year's competition. Selection criteria included an architecturally innovative external appearance with appropriate use of brick as a material, as well as the functionality and the environmental friendliness of the building put forward. A jury of international experts, comprising Andrea Deplazes (Switzerland), Maurizio Masi (Italy), Radu Mihailescu (Romania), Vladimir Plotkin (Russia) and Thomas Rau (Netherlands) chose the winners from the large number of entries.

First prize was awarded to the new State Forum and Parliament building of the Principality of Liechtenstein (Hansjörg Göritz Architecture Studio), with second prize going to the Documentation Centre for Human Rights in New Dehli (Anagram Architects).
