Prize of the Province of Tyrol for Heinfels Castle
We are happy with architect Gerhard Mitterberger about the "Award of the Province of Tyrol for New Building 2022"! The prize was awarded during a ceremony at the Tyrolean Architecture Center "aut.architektur und tirol" on November 10 in Innsbruck.
From the 76 projects submitted, the jury - Sonja Gasparin (Gasparin & Meier Architekten, Finkenstein am Faaker See, A), Florian Nagler (architect and professor at TU Munich, D), Armando Ruinelli (architect, Soglio, CH) - spent two intensive days in July viewing a short list of buildings and decided on 16 nominations. Four awards and four recognitions were given to buildings that meet the criterion of a particularly exemplary engagement with the architectural challenges of our time, both in terms of aesthetics and innovation. The jury also gave an honorable mention this year. The ongoing exhibition "Neues Bauen 2022 in Tirol" at aut.architektur und tirol shows all submitted and awarded projects.
Excerpt from the jury text by Florian Nagler:
"With the highest differentiation in detail, an ensemble of convincing, unified power was created, old and new spaces of haunting atmospheric quality were created, and also "quite incidentally" a museum that conveys its contents unobtrusively and thus all the more effectively."
