For the ninth time, Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein is showcasing award-winning contemporary Austrian architecture and turning the spotlight on the winners of the Austrian Builder-Owner Award as part of its Architektur im Ringturm series.

Presented by the Central Association of Austrian Architects, the award is one of the country’s most prestigious architectural prizes. The 2019 Austrian Builder-Owner Award pays tribute to outstanding projects completed within the past three years that stand out for the exceptional collaboration between builder-owners and architects. The projects include remarkable buildings, landscape architecture and urban development solutions.

Of the 132 projects submitted from across Austria, 24 were shortlisted, from which the jury—architects Andreas Cukrowicz (Bregenz) and Donatella Fioretti (Berlin), as well as architecture journalist Albert Kirchengast (Vienna)—selected the six award winners for 2019.

All 24 shortlisted projects are on display at the Ringturm, with a focus on the six award winners, including a detailed look at their backgrounds and evolution:

–Streckhof farm building with schnapps distillery, Burgenland
–Wagyu cow barn on the Hausruck hills, Upper Austria
–Haus obd’r Lech hotel, Vorarlberg
–Schendlingen school, Bregenz, Vorarlberg
–Stadtelefant architecture collective, Vienna
–University of Applied Arts, Vienna

The structures offer fascinating insights into Austria’s contemporary architectural landscape.
