BUGA Fibre Pavilion

The BUGA Fibre Pavilion at the Bundesgartenschau Heilbronn recently received the German Design Award - Winner 2020 in the category "Excellent Architecture".

The German Design Award is conferred by the German Design Council, Germany’s leading brand and design authority. Its mission is to present the latest developments in the German design scene. Established in 1953 as a foundation on the initiative of the German Bundestag, it supports the economy in consistently achieving brand value through design. This makes the German Design Council one of the world’s leading competence centres for communication and brand management in the field of design. In addition to business associations and institutions, the exclusive network of foundation members includes, in particular, the owners and brand managers of many well-known companies. The German Design Award is the top international prize of the German Design Council. Its goal: to discover, present and honour unique design trends. Therefore, every year, top-quality entries from product and communication design are rewarded, all of which are in their own way ground-breaking in the international design landscape. Launched in 2012, the German Design Award is one of the most well-respected design competitions in the world and is held in high regard well beyond professional circles.

Congratulations to the team and our supporters! Find more information here: BUGA Fibre Pavilion - Winner German Design Award - Excellent Architecture
