Last year the Vereinigung freischaffender Architekten (VfA) – Association of Independent Architects – called on Generation Y to come up with their own answer to the question of how they want to work in the future. The 2016/2017 student competition was named 'Dynamic Workplace'. Nineteen projects were submitted by architecture students from various universities before the late-February deadline – all with very different approaches to the question of how their very own 'Dynamic Workplace' should look.
Günter Osterhaus, Head of Planning and Project Management at ASSMANN, and the jury, chaired by Matthias Burkart (VfA Baden-Württemberg), selected the three winners, whose efforts were rewarded with 10,000 euros in prize money offered by the firm JUNG and competitionline. The awards ceremony took place during the JUNG Architecture Conference in Frankfurt.
