(July 2011) The German Natural Stone Awards are presented bi-annually at Nuremberg’s Stone+tec. For the first time, submissions were accepted from across Europe. 20 of the just under 90 submissions were from abroad.
The prize was awarded „for outstanding design and state-of-the-art construction of projects implementing natural stone and produced by specialized natural stone enterprises“ as stated in the submission application forms. The purse totalled 30,000 € and was distributed among the first prize, 5 distinction awards, and 5 honourable mentions as well as one special prize. The awards are presented jointly by the German Natural Stone Trade Organisation Deutscher Naturstein-Verband (DNV) and the German Architects’ Gild, Bund Deutscher Architecten (BDA).
