Troldtekt Award 2014 April 2014

About Contest:

The International Troldtekt Award 2014 is a biennial concept competition for international students of design & architecture. The Award encourages students to explore Troldtekt acoustic panels and find new uses for them that are not only creative but also possible to realise in practice.

The project can describe the proposal from small scale to large scale. The competition is open - the only condition is that Troldtekt is incorporated in a creative and realistic way. In other words, participants can choose to impose colours, shapes, their imagination or something completely different on the Troldtekt products. The assignment is a concept competition and is therefore not restricted by the cost of realising the proposal in practice.

The Award is global and open to any registered student of design & architecture. The winner wins a prize of 5,000 Euro.

The jury, comprising among others internationally renowned architects will award a winner. The deadline for registering for the International Troldtekt Award is the 1st of April 2014. The deadline for submitting a project is the 30 April 2014.

Judgement Criteria:

The jury will be looking at the projects from a creative as well as a practical aspect. In other words, the whole idea of the Troldtekt Award is to discover new angles and innovations that go beyond conventional applications, yet which can still be produced in real life.


Judging the proposals which have been submitted will be concluded no later than at the end of June 2014. The result of the competition will be published on this web page, and the competition winner will be informed directly. Troldtekt reserves the right to exhibit all competition entries. 


The competition project must be submitted electronically no later than 30 April 2014 (included). The project must be in A1 format with text in English and must be uploaded through this web page.
