This year, the German Architecture Award (DAP), worth 30,000 euros, goes to the collaborative working group of Hermann Kaufmann ZT GmbH and Florian Nagler Architekten, who designed the new Schmuttertal Secondary School in Diedorf, Bavaria.
The prize is awarded, every second year, to outstanding architectural achievements. The jury had to select the winner from 160 superb submissions. The Schmuttertal Secondary School Diedorf, which was built by order of the Augsburg district, is constructed as a resource-conserving, plus-energy house, in a wooden skeleton construction, and has a future-oriented architectural design. The German Environmental Foundation (Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt – DBU) funded the innovative school project with 1.1 million euros.
