A total of 573 projects from 31 countries have been submitted to this year’s AIT Award, which had to compete in eight different categories (living, hotel/gastronomy, retail/trade fair, office/administration, health/care, sports/leisure, public buildings /education, industry/commerce).
On 10th March 2014, an international jury selected the 10 to 15 best projects in each category in a two-phase assessment process. In the third phase, the submissions were discussed once again and finally, the jury decided which ones are to be honoured with an award or distinction. This year, the award-winners come from Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Switzerland, Slovenia, and Spain.
The exact places of the winners are announced on 2 April 2014 at 4:30 p.m. in the context of a festive award ceremony in the context of the Light+Building trade fair in Frankfurt.
