The Zumtobel Group Award has recently announced fifteen nominees for the 2014 awards under the categories of Buildings, Urban Developments, and Applied Innovations–a new category that recognizes “technological solutions that make a trailblazing contribution to the realisation of a more sustainable built environment.” We are elated to see the familiar public interest design practices Rural Urban Framework, Studio TAMassociati, and Urban Think-Tank nominated for a Buildings award, along with new projects like ArchiAid, Megacity Skeleton, and Elemental’s Pres Constitution in Urban Developments and Bamboo Reinforced Concrete and Prefabricated Rammed Earth in Applied Innovations. The jury has their work cut out for them in selecting the final winner, which is due out later this year in September.
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.
