The BUGA Wood Pavilion was awarded “Best of Best” in the category “Innovative Material” at the Iconic Awards 2019.

Iconic Awards: Innovative Architecture, established by the German Design Council, is the first independent international architecture and design competition to take into account the interplay between the various disciplines. Awards are given to visionary buildings, innovative products and sustainable communication in all sectors of architecture, the construction and real estate business and the manufacturing industries. The focus is on holistic production and interaction between the trades in the context of architecture.

The award ceremony will take place on October 7th, 2019, at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, Europe’s largest collections of modern and contemporary art, architecture and design.
