Angela Deuber wins “Architekturpreis Beton 2017”
Since 1977, the “Architekturpreis Beton” has been awarded every four years. The competition promotes outstanding work with concrete and, for more than four decades, has occupied a special place in Swiss architecture awards in terms of orientation and content. Thus, the prize reflects the construction process in Switzerland, inspires the discourse on good architecture and shows creative potential of building material concrete.
In a three-stage selection process, which found it’s completion in the on-site inspection of the objects, a jury of experts led by Professor Mike Guyer selected the winner out of 157 submissions.
The architect Angela Deuber from Chur wins with her entry. Her school in Buechen impresses with simple rules and specific exceptions, which lend the building a lightness in conjunction with the load-bearing elements and the processed exposed concrete.
