The “Zumtobel Group Award – Innovations for Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment” is an architectural award that acts as a stimulus for new developments and concepts in the built environment that help meet current and future demands for improved urban living conditions and energy needs.
For many years the Zumtobel Group with its three internationally established brands Thorn, Tridonic and Zumtobel has made sustainability and energy efficiency key objectives in the production, function and application of its products. Aware that significant, innovative solutions in architecture and urban planning can help cut global energy consumption and boost the general quality of life, the Zumtobel Group decided to initiate the biennial “Zumtobel Group Award - Innovations for Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment”.
The Zumtobel Group Award was first presented in 2007. Since then, a total of nine projects have been awarded first place, while 36 projects have earned nominations. Today it ranks among the most respected awards in the world of architecture.
