Call for entries 2017
The publisher has awarded a prize for exceptional achievements in structural engineering every two years since 1988. This call for entries for the Ulrich Finsterwalder Structural Engineering Award is already the 15th. The prize is intended to improve public awareness of the work of structural engineers and their commitment to building culture.
Take part and use the opportunity to publicise an exceptional achievement in structural engineering. The prize-winning structure will be reported in detail in all specialist journals of the publisher Ernst & Sohn. With our national and international journals, we will inform more than 30,000 specialised readers about your project, the involved consultants and contractors.
The Ulrich Finsterwalder Structural Engineering Award from Ernst & Sohn is awarded to the project team for the prize-winning structure. The winner is handed a prestigious plaque. The publisher will also document and publicise all the competition entries in their print and online editions.
The award will take place at a ceremony in February 2017 in Munich, Deutsches Museum.

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.
