About this title


The German Steel Construction prize is one of Germany's most prestigious prizes in architecture. Since its inception in 1972, it has been awarded every two years in recognition of outstanding achievement in the field of engineering in which the specific possibilities for steel are exploited in both application and form. In the past, ten other awards were given in addition to the prize itself. Due to the enormous increase in participants (in 1994, 96 contributions were submitted to the competition), 17 awards are now granted. This book offers an overall view of all the award-winning projects since 1972, supplemented by those buildings which, within the field of European competition, have been acclaimed for their exceptional achievements. A total of 160 buildings from the last 25 years evince the high level of steel construction technology and the creative force of the architects and engineers. The range of works covered includes small kiosks, one-family homes, multi-storied commercial buildings and clinics, elementary schools and colleges, institutes and research centres, sport and swimming facilities, stadiums and stand roofing, pedestrian passageways, bold bridge constructions, radio telescopes and solar power plants. As such, the book provides comprehensive documentation of steel construction architecture of the last 25 years.
