Architecture Award Building Integrated Solar Technology 2022

Award-winning solar architecture

Excellent examples from all over the world awarded for constructing with solar energy: the prize winners of the “Architecture Award Building-Integrated Solar Technology 2022“

The international competition was held for the 9h time in the year 2022.

This year’s competition attracted 121 entries, 12 of which came from universities. Since the first competition in 2000, a total of 783 entries have been submitted to the nine competitions. This is an extremely pleasing result given the prize’s aim of not only encouraging outstanding contributions to planning and designing building-integrated solar power systems, but also highlighting exemplary solutions in sophisticated architecture.
