Wienerberger Brick Award – Winners

Brick Award 2014 Trophy

The Wienerberger Brick Award winners

Since 2004 the Wienerberger Brick Award has provided a stage for excellent brick architecture and its architects. Every two years a great amount of projects are entered into the award world-wide. Subsequently, all submitted projects are studied and discussed by an independent panel of architecture journalists, critics and architects, who narrow down the number to 50 projects split into different categories, which are then nominated for the award.
 
These 50 nominations are presented to an international jury board of well-known architects, who choose the category winners and grand prize winner of the current award. Among the jury members we had architects like the Pritzker prize winner of 2012 Wang Shu, Laura Andreini, Mies van der Rohe 2015 finalist and Rudolf Finsterwalder, Fritz Höger Grand Prize winner 2014, just to mention a few.

The winners of the Wienerberger Brick Award are announced biannual at an award ceremony and presented in the accompanying Brick book.
 
Winning projects can be found all over the world. The first Wienerberger Brick Award in 2004 has been won by Josef Pleskot in Czech Republic with his beautiful solution for a pedestrian passage in a castle park. In the following years the grand prizes went to Hungary, Germany, Liechtenstein, South Africa and Thailand. At the last Wienerberger Brick Award in 2016 architects from Austria and Spain were awarded with the grand prize.
