The Hugo Häring Award explicitly recognizes the joint work of the client and the architect. “Good and award-worthy architecture can only be created with a lot of mutual understanding and consistent, joint decisions,” says Detlef Sacker, chairman of the district group.
The Sparkasse Freiburg-Nördlicher Breisgau is once again the venue for the award ceremony this year, but still without guests on site. The program will be streamed live via #inFreiburgzuhause (www.infreiburgzuhause.de) on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. from the Meckelhalle in the Sparkassen-FinanzZentrum.
The panels of all the structures submitted can be seen in the Meckelhalle from September 16 to October 15, 2021. The exhibition is accessible free of charge during the opening hours of the Sparkasse Freiburg – Nördlicher Breisgau.
The Hugo Häring Award is the first stage of the nationwide process that has been carried out since 1969. The Hugo Häring Prize for Baden-Württemberg is awarded among the winners of the 15 district groups. It is considered to be the most important award for architecture in the country.
Hugo Häring was one of the most important initiators of the ‘New Building’. With its name, the BDA is committed to the tradition of ‘modern architecture’ and honors the architect, who was born in Biberach in 1882 and who opposed both abstract laws of form and a subjective conception of architecture.
