Presentation of the Russian wood construction prize at the Architecture Biennial in Moscow

Arch. Werner Nussmüller judge at Russian wood construction prize awarded by ARCHIWOOD.

The ARCHIWOOD wood construction prize was awarded in Moscow at the end of May 2012. Despite a long tradition of building with wood, and thus numerous Russian experts in this field, this year the organisers headed by the curators Nikolay Malinin and Julia Zinkevich (archiwood) recruited an architect from Western Europe onto the panel of judges. Following an excursion to pick an expert from Western Europe, including a visit to Seewood in Styria, Graz-based architect Arch. Werner Nussmüller (Nussmüller Architects) from SEEWOOD was invited to join the jury.
Arch. Werner Nussmüller, accompanied by Karlheinz Boiger (Hohensinn Architecture), also held a lecture on the qualities of Austrian wood construction at this year’s Russian Architecture Biennial in Moscow. His talk met with great interest. “The topics and the Austrian approach to wood structures met with great interest in Russia. We were able to make some good contacts, gain an insight into the Russian architecture scene, and further establish Austria as a country of wood construction”, the architect said.
The winning projects, that received the Archiwood prize in different categories, were all created by young teams of architects and reflect the great motivation and trends in wood construction in Russia. The extremely professional handling and organisation of the Archiwood wood construction prize, including the jury, prize presentation, and excellent presentation of all nominated projects in a wooden pavilion open to the public (which was designed ahead of the event in an architecture competition), demonstrate the perspectives that are opening up for wood construction in Russia.
