The livMatS Pavilion recieved the Green Concept Award 2022 Best of Architecture & Tiny Houses.
Since 2013, the international Green Product Award has recognized products and services that excel in design, innovation and sustainability. From 56 countries 1500 projects were submitted for the Green Product Award 2021 and reviewed under the aspects of design, innovation & sustainability in a multi-stage process.
The jury stated: “Digitalisation and sustainability are not contradictory. The University of Stuttgart's livMats Pavillion prototype demonstrates in an innovative and at the same time aesthetic way how the great challenges of our time can be cleverly networked to create sustainable, resource-efficient alternatives to our conventional building methods. The robotically twisted flax fibres are not only renewable, biodegradable and offer an exciting alternative to known natural building materials due to their regional availability, but also generate a new material-specific design language of the highest aesthetic quality.”
