Architecture competition “Building of the Year”: Dornbracht again main sponsor
As the main sponsor, Dornbracht once again supports ArchDaily’s “Building of the Year” award in 2022, which annually honours the best buildings. With this commitment, the fittings manufacturer underlines its connection with architects worldwide and its aspiration to highlight exceptional projects from this sector.
“Leading Designs for Architecture” – in keeping with this guiding principle, Dornbracht sets decisive impulses in the industry with its progressive products. With the “Building of the Year” award, ArchDaily takes the same direction: By selecting the best buildings of the year and then offering them a stage, the online platform provides architects with first-class inspiration for their work. At the same time, it encourages design enthusiasts to spot current building trends.
“Good architecture is much more than just an attractive facade. The interplay of environment, people, forms, colors and materials is what makes it. Identifying and honoring remarkable work from this field is a particular concern of ours,” says Stefan Gesing, CEO of Dornbracht AG & Co. KG. “With the ‘Building of the Year’ award, ArchDaily has created a renowned platform for the evaluation of constructional achievements. It offers architects the opportunity to present their best work. At the same time, the competition invites the public to discover the special features of the projects submitted. Inspire and be inspired – that’s where we like to support!”
“With Dornbracht, we have a partner that is highly respected internationally among architects and shares our interest in forward-looking architecture,” emphasizes David Basulto, Founder & Editor in Chief of ArchDaily. The architecture portal has been organizing the “Building of the Year” award since 2009. On 25 January 2022, the competition will enter a new round: From that day on, interested parties will have the opportunity to vote online for their favorite project. There will be a total of 15 categories to choose from, with 4,500 entries from over 100 countries.
