For the eighth year in succession, Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein’s popular Architektur im Ringturm series will turn the spotlight on the Austrian Builder-Owner Award, arguably the most prestigious accolade on the country’s architecture scene. From December 2018 to late February 2019, all 22 shortlisted projects will be on display at the Ringturm Exhibition Centre, with a focus on the six winners.

Education takes centre stage in the 2018 award. Two out of the six award winners are schools: Bundesschule Aspern secondary school in Vienna and Volksschule Dorf Lauterach primary school in Vorarlberg. 

Of the 106 projects submitted from across Austria, 22 were shortlisted, from which the jury—architects Andreas Bründler (Basel) and Stefan Marte (Feldkirch), as well as architecture journalist and curator Gabriele Kaiser (Vienna)—then selected the six award winners. 

Introduced in 1967 by Central Association of Austrian Architects, the Austrian Builder-Owner Award pays tribute to outstanding projects completed within the past three years. These include exceptional constructions, landscape architecture projects and—for the first time in 2018—urban planning solutions that stand out for the in-depth collaboration between builder-owner and architect. 

Visitors to the exhibition at Vienna’s Ringturm tower can look forward to new insights and fresh perspectives on Austria’s contemporary architecture scene, as well as a cross section of superlative construction projects.
