• Alert for architects: entries for German Natural Stone Award close on 31 January 2018
• “One of the most important architecture awards in Germany”
• Range of stone and sustainable domestic natural stone at Stone+tec
Whether it’s for a façade, floor or interior use, stone lends projects a particular charisma. At Stone+tec 2018 (13-16 July 2018), the focus will be on natural stone and engineered stone in all their variety. For anyone working with stone, the exhibition in Nuremberg will present a wide selection of stone types, new opportunities for surface treatment, and background knowledge ranging from origins to sustainability. The presentation of the 2018 German Natural Stone Award on the first day of the exhibition will offer plenty of inspiration for architects and project owners. The award is given by the German Natural Stone Association (DNV), together with the Association of German Architects (BDA) and NürnbergMesse. Entries can be submitted until 31 January 2018.
