Prof. Achim Menges (ICD), Prof. Jan Knippers (ITKE)
Award

 

The Urbach Tower has been awarded the Materialpreis 2021 in the category of Material Application.

The jury states about the project:
"This pure and material-driven experiment by ICD / ITKE - University of Stuttgart is primarily future-oriented. But it is also exciting in the truest sense of the word, because it exhausts the material forces in wood to the utmost. As a matter of course, the landmark presents itself as a borderline experience of digital production and natural material properties in the landscape - and still takes a step back: But how can it be made of wood?"

Congratulations to the entire project team from the University of Stuttgart, Empa / ETH Zurich, and Blumer Lehmann AG!
