Building Culture Award Erlangen 2024

Stand: 03.06.2024

We are looking for the best buildings in the city of Erlangen from the last two years. The call goes out to all architects and clients.


As a reflection of the social, cultural, political and economic history - of the city as well as the region - buildings shape the appearance and image of a city for years and centuries. They have an identity-forming effect; building culture and building tradition give a society stability and solidarity.

The image of the city is constantly changing in line with the constantly changing framework conditions and challenges, such as legal regulations or individual and social influences. The process of identity formation is never complete. In addition to preserving the architectural heritage, it is therefore an urgent task for a city to raise public awareness of high-quality new, contemporary architecture that blends into the established context or reinterprets or accentuates it. Conflicts and discussions that arise can certainly be fruitful, support awareness-raising and sharpen the perception of the everyday.

What is honored with the Baukultur Award?

Buildings and their responsible owners who are particularly aware of their

  • their appreciation of urban integration and a special architectural and open space design as well as, from an ecological point of view, the overall social goal of climate protection and
  • are therefore also convincing due to their special location justice.
