AS ERICH MENDELSOHN AWARD FOR BRICK ARCHITECTURE INTO THE FUTURE
Erich Mendelsohn was one of the most important representatives of modernism in Germany and is still considered one of the world's most innovative architects of his time. The Initiative Bauen mit Backstein (Brick Building Initiative) is taking a special step to honor Mendelsohn as a pioneer of modern architecture: Its international architecture prize, which is awarded every three years, will in future bear the name Erich Mendelsohn Award for Brick Architecture.
Architecture Prize is awarded for the sixth time
A success story continues: Dedicated to the visionary architect Erich Mendelsohn, the renowned prize for brick architecture is now entering its sixth round.
The focus is once again on outstanding projects that make use of the architectural potential of the traditional building material brick in a way that is fit for the future. The competition, which is held every three years, recently received more than 600 entries from 30 countries. Entries for the prize, which is worth a total of 10,000 euros, can be submitted from January 9, 2023.
