With more than 65,000 visitors from architecture and planning offices, BAU is the number one communication platform for this target group. That is why BAU is the most appropriate place to present internationally renowned architecture awards.
The Archi-World Academy Award, a competition for young architects and architecture students from around the world, is a special highlight. Twelve star architects from around the world, who also make up the panel of judges—this year including Wolf D. Prix from COOP HIMMELB(L)AU—are offering six-month internships in their companies. Interest is correspondingly high. More than 1,500 young architects and architecture students from around the world took part in this competition during BAU 2015. The award ceremony takes place at Forum C2 on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at 15:30.
