ICONIC AWARD 2018
Recognition for a child-friendly educational center
ATP has received the ICONIC AWARD 2018 in the category “Innovative Architecture”. The international architectural and design competition is organized by the non-profit trust the “German Design Council” with the objective of honoring visionary, innovative, and sustainable buildings from all areas of architecture.
All these attributes come together in the prize-winning educational center in the village of Holzgau in Lechtal. Primarily constructed from local timber, concrete, and glass, the building is home to a nursery, a kindergarten, a school, a childcare facility, and a sports hall. Rather than strictly separating these different elements the building seeks to take advantage of use synergies and create spatial interfaces. The building is designed in line with traditional, regional methods and slips harmoniously into the landscape of the Nature Park Region.
The award was presented on 8th October 2018 during Expo Real in the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich. It is regarded as an independent, internationally recognized quality label for contemporary developments and design achievements. The focus of the trust is the overall orchestration of a project and the interaction between the individual participants in the creation of architecture – a course that has been charted for many years by ATP as a pioneer in the field of integrated design.
