The Architecture for Health Students’ Award, offered by the Christine and Hans Nickl Foundation, honours three ground-breaking student works.
With the Architecture for Health Students ’Award, which was presented for the first time in 2019, the Christine and Hans Nickl Foundation would like to encourage young architects and planners to engage in the social and architectural challenges of building in and for the healthcare system.
The competition was organized by the European Network Architecture for Health (ENAH). Eleven papers from seven universities from six different nations were submitted. On January 9, 2020, the jury meeting took place in Berlin to select the award-winning works.
Three works prevailed in the anonymous process, each of which takes up the topic of building for health with very different approaches. They will be awarded equivalent prizes by the Nickl Foundation of 1,500 euros each:
