Announcement of the 14th Structural Engineering Award 2015
Every two years since 1988, the publisher Ernst & Sohn has awarded the Structural Engineering Award for exceptional achievements in structural engineering to the project team responsible for the prizewinning structure. Between 30 and 40 project teams take up the challenge to enter each time.
With the announcement of the 2015 Award, the Structural Engineering Award is being renamed as the "Ulrich Finsterwalder Structural Engineering Award" in honour of Ulrich Finsterwalder. The publisher Ernst & Sohn, in collaboration with the descendants of Ulrich Finsterwalder, will thus continue the basic idea of the Structural Engineering Award, to promote the profession of civil and structural engineering in the public arena.
Applications to take part are now possible.
Application deadline: 19 September 2014
You can find the application documents here (in German)
You can find an overview of the 2013 winners and the entered projects online here (in German)
About Ulrich Finsterwalder
Ulrich Finsterwalder counts as one of the most significant civil and structural engineers of the 20th century due to his contributions in the fields of reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete. He is one of the outstanding engineers, known outside the boundaries of Germany and Europe. Finsterwalder built on many continents and his achievements were honoured internationally with dozens of medals and other honours. His name therefore not only stands for reinforced concrete construction but for the whole field of structural engineering.
You can find a short biography and an overview of his works and career on Structurae.
Take part and take the opportunity of drawing attention to an outstanding achievement of structural engineering.
The publisher will report on the 2015 prize winners, all the entered projects and the people involved in the project in detail in their print and online media.
The jury sitting is in November 2014 in Berlin, and the prizes will be awarded at a ceremony at the end of January 2015 in Munich.
