AIT-Award 2012

Over 1,400 projects from 44 countries in 21 categories were entered for this year’s award presented by the Hamburg architectural journal AIT. In the somewhat complicated evaluation process Baumschlager Eberle won third place in the special “Charity” category with its nursing home in Düsseldorf. Given a statistical assumption of 70 projects per category, that is a satisfactory performance. Talking of charitable work, the eminent German journal DETAIL will be reporting on this nursing home in its next issue. From the point of view of public relations, BE projects have shown time and again that they have a lasting impact in the media. After all, the nursing home in Düsseldorf was completed in 2009, which may be an eternity for the media but it remains topical nonetheless.
