PANEUM awarded Property Developer Prize 2018
On Friday, 19 October, the 51st Property Developer Prize was presented in Graz. The Central Association of Architects of Austria honoured the PANEUM – Wunderkammer of Bread and owner Peter Augendopler with this award.
The annually awarded Property Developer Prize of the Central Association of Architects of Austria pays tribute to projects and their owners by recognising developers, clients and mentors who have made a special contribution to building culture. In 2018, a total of 106 construction projects were submitted, 22 of which made it before the main jury. The winners were finally announced at an awards ceremony on 19 October. The PANEUM was honoured as one of six award winners: the backaldrin project was characterised, in particular, by the intense cooperation between client and company owner Peter Augendopler and architect Wolf D. Prix of Coop Himmelb(l)au. “We are extremely pleased that we have been able to share our passion for bread with the world at the PANEUM for more than a year. The fact that the project has now also been awarded the Property Developer Prize is a great honour. The unique modern environment that we have created with Coop Himmelb(l)au is part of the success story that we have been able to write thus far with our Wunderkammer of Bread,” says Peter Augendopler. The award will take pride of place amongst the exhibits in the PANEUM®. The impressive collection takes visitors on a journey into the past, present and future of the valuable food. As a part of backaldrin, it also brings consumers closer to the bakery and its products.
