Architecture Award assigned in three categories

The submission period for the 2017 Award has expired. Submissions were invited from 30 September 2016 to 15 January 2017.

Submissions for the 2017 Award were invited in three categories, each category being presented by one of the lighting group’s brands. For the first time, the 2017 Award will also include a special award for Young Professionals.

In the first few months of 2017, a first-line jury will select 15 projects in each category from among the submissions. Then, in mid-2017, the main jury of prominent international experts from a variety of disciplines will nominate five projects per category and select a winner from among these five.

The total purse for the Zumtobel Group Award 2017 is EUR 150,000. This sum will be divided among the winning projects from the three categories and the special award for Young Professionals.

The Zumtobel Group Award honours contemporary realised or conceptual works of exceptional innovative content, design, technology and construction. Submissions must make a significant contribution to greater humanity and sustainability in the built environment.
