The jury was extremely enthusiastic about the wealth of ideas among the many proposals. A total of 65 proposals were submitted from 23 countries worldwide. The open assignment to create something new using Troldtekt has apparently inspired many people regardless of what they already knew about the material. There are many good examples of how to create privacy and peace in noisy surroundings, either in public spaces or the home. In addition to acoustics as the overriding theme, many have also considered Troldtekt as a material with texture and character. All this has produced a number of interesting and aesthetic proposals.
In selecting a competition winner, the jury has grouped the projects. Most proposals fell within the following categories: furniture, surfaces/walls and ceilings, cocoons/private spaces, light/transparency. A unanimous jury then selected a single project for its both realistic and visionary solution which holds tremendous potential. The standard of the proposals was generally extremely high, and even though the winning project stands out, one other project was given a Special Prize for its creativity while four others were honourable mentions. Together, the six projects illustrate the breadth of the responses, from the sensual on the one hand to the globally committed on the other.
