At a ceremony in Hamburg on 3rd September, Ole Scheeren received the International B.A.U.M. Award for his city-defining architecture and contributions to the urban realm. A second International B.A.U.M. Award this year went to former German President Horst Köhler for his lifelong commitment to sustainable economic and social development and global cooperation.
In an official statement, the B.A.U.M. Award Jury highlighted Ole Scheeren’s “visionary concepts, which integrate quality of life for many with environmental and social sustainability”. It singled out the Interlace residential development in Singapore: with its stacked architecture, the project generates a surplus of green space and stands as an emblem of socially and environmentally sustainable, high-density housing.
The B.A.U.M. Awards are conferred annually and acknowledge extraordinary achievements in the field of social and environmental sustainability.
