The DETAIL Prize, this year being awarded for the seventh time in ten years, is awarded to futureoriented, innovative and standard-setting projects that have outstanding architectural and technical qualities.
The prize is awarded every two years by DETAIL in cooperation with partners and sponsors from the political arena and industry. The declared aim of the DETAIL Prize is to highlight the importance of architecture for society, to strengthen the role of architects in public, and to promote networking among architects, industrialists, developers and politicians.
