Winning project

The Troldtekt Award 2016 and 5,000 euros go to two architecture students from UAUIM in Bucharest, Romania.

Vasile Iulian Badarau and Bogdan Cristian Lazar thrilled the jury with their project "Troldtekt AIR" and their idea of playing with the thickness of Troldtekt acoustic panels. In this way, the natural wood wool material can have many different functions and potentially be used to build an entire house.
