The studio is thrilled to share that Zeitz MOCAA is the recipient of this year’s Detail Prize. Group Leader Mat Cash collected the award at a ceremony in Munich this month. The annual prize, awarded by Detail Magazine and now in its eighth year, celebrates innovative projects with exemplary architectural and technical qualities.

The international jury – comprised of Dr. Sandra Hofmeister, Jakob Schoof, Kjetil Traedal Thorsen, Prof. Manfred Grohmann, Prof. Dr. Philippe Block – made the following statement about Zeitz MOCAA:

“Symbolic value, function, atmosphere and construction find a unique synthesis here. The bold incision through the silos surprises with its asymmetrical shape, which only becomes apparent at second glance as a magnification of a grain many thousands of times over. The visible, constructive reinforcement of the silo walls, which became necessary due to the newly created vault form, has also been perfectly executed.”
