Together with RAU architects and SeArch we are proud to receive this year’s International Architecture Award in the Corporate category for our project Triango awarded to us by the The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, together with The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. These have announced the winners of the prestigious 2018 International Architecture Awards, selected from a shortlist of 380 cutting-edge projects in urban planning, architecture and landscape architecture.
Triango is a proposal for a new type of office area, one that is lively and diverse, functional, but at the same time, ambitious and experimental—where sustainability is promoted in every sense of the word.
We are looking forward to the ceremony in Athens, where on Friday, September 28, 2018, The Chicago Athenaeum, together with The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, will open a special exhibition and reception of all awarded buildings at the annual symposium, “The City and the World” at The Contemporary Space Athens.
Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, Museum President, The Chicago Athenaeum: “The projects on the shortlist were judged against a range of criteria including design vision; innovation and originality; capacity to stimulate, engage and delight occupants and visitors; accessibility and sustainability; how fit the building is for its purpose and the level of client satisfaction."
Founded in 2005, The International Architecture Awards, organized by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, is the oldest, annual public celebration of global architecture that sees practices around the world compete for the title of Global Building of the Year. The International Architecture Awards are the only non-commercial, global, and public awards program given jointly by two not-for-profit Museums in the United States and Europe dedicated to public education concerning architecture and industrial design.
