Nominated for the Danish Wood Award 2016
Vandkunsten is nominated for the prestigious Danish Wood Award 2016 for our innovative work with wood to achieve sustainable architecture.
Vandkunsten Architects have used wood as a structural materiale for decades. We love it and use in many projects because it is beautiful, sustainable and affordable.
We are proud to be nominated for the Danish Wood Award, one of the oldest architecture awards in Denmark. Among reasons for the nomination, the jury mentions projects such as the non-profit houses at the Denmark Plot (Danmarksgrunden), our research into weathering of wood (Edelfäule project), as well as the Future Non-Profit Housing in Lisbjerg near Aarhus.
We were fortunate to receive the award in 1983 and we are very proud to be considered for this year’s award.
