Art: Distinction for masons in heritage projects

(July 2011) Nuremberg’s Stone+tec was once again the site of the award presentation of the Peter-Parler-Prize awarded for outstanding masonic achievements in historic conservation projects. Its aim is to interest craftsmen for this substantial field.

A total of 15,000 € was in the purse.

Peter Parler (approx. 1330-1399 A.D.), after whom the bi-annual prize is named, was one of the most important master-designers of pre-renaissance cathedral construction. Prague’s Charles Bridge and St. Vitus Cathedral both stem from his drawing board.
