Swiss Vectorworks firms win several awards at Die Besten 2011


Last month the Swiss Architect and Designer Awards Ceremony “Die Besten 2011 in Architektur, Landschaftsarchitektur und Design” took place in Zürich. Three projects in architecture, landscape architecture, and design were awarded a wooden trophy of a hare in gold, silver and bronze. We are pleased to announce that several Swiss Vectorworks firms took home honors.

The Gold Award for landscape was awarded to Lukas Schweingruber und Rainer Zulauf  from Schweingruber Zulauf Landschaftsarchitekten for their transformation of an old train viaduct area into a path and park  for pedestrians and cyclists. A video about the project can be viewed on

Knapkiewicz & Fickert won the Silver Award in architecture for their residential development in Zürich. The jury described the project as “timeless, unique and surprisingly ‘unswiss’ with its 360 apartments built for two communities connected by a green courtyard.”

Architects Kaschka Knapkiewicz and Axel Fickert receive the Silver Award from Hannes Hug.

This awards ceremony is organized by one of the most renown and widely-read architectural magazines, the “Hochparterre“, as well as the Zürich Museum of Design and, a cultural Internet TV broadcaster.

We congratulate the winners!
