Two winners for the biennial architecture prize organized by Wienerberger for the most innovative examples of construction with brick.
One winner could not suffice to complete the seventh edition of the Wienerberger Brick Award, so both Austria and Spain took top honors with two innovative projects using brick: the 2226 building by the Austrian architect Dietmar Eberle and Casa 1014 by the Catalan studio Harquitectes.
The two joint winners were selected by a jury composed of four internationally acclaimed architects, from over 600 projects submitted from 55 countries, a new record of participation, and from the 50 finalists who were on hand at the prize ceremony at the Radiokulturhaus in Vienna.
In 2016 the prizes were assigned in the following categories: Residential, Public Works, Re-Use, Urban Renewal and Innovative Applications, for a total of 31,500 euros.
All the winners and the 50 finalists can be seen at www.brickaward.com.
