Nominated for the German Sustainability Award

At this year's German Sustainability Award for Architecture (Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitpreis), eight nominees with a mixture of existing and new construction projects made it into the final round. One of them is the experimental laboratory and pioneer project of the Urbane Mitte Am Gleisdreieck, the B-Part Am Gleisdreieck.

All the projects convincingly demonstrate how sustainability, innovation and design quality can be combined. This year this prestigious award is being presented for the eighth time jointly by the German Sustainability Award Foundation and the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).

"With the nominees for the German Sustainability Award for Architecture, we are again covering an exciting range of architectural solutions," says DGNB Executive Committee member Amandus Samsøe Sattler, who was chairman of the jury. The jury's statement for the nomination of B-Part states among other things:

"This open and experimental urban laboratory is intended to reflect on housing, working, living together and mobility in the future. Particularly the identity-forming and communicative effect that such a building can have on the neighborhood was rated positively. The jury concluded that "this contribution represents a very well-thought-out example of temporary construction for initial operations and the period of possible subsequent use in a yet unknown place.

The complete jury statement on the nomination of the B-Part Am Gleisdreieck can be viewed on the German Sustainability Award website (available only in german). On September 15th 2020, the German Sustainability Award jury will decide on the finalists and the winner.
