International manufacturer of wood wool panels, Troldtekt, has announced the opening of its Wood Wool Award 2015, celebrating the 80th anniversary of the company. Open to entries from September 14 to October 16, 2015, the competition will recognize two projects that best implement visible wood wool acoustic solutions: one that uses wood wool panels not manufactured by Troldtekt, and one project featuring Troldtekt cement-bonded wood wool panels.
The jury features Mikkel Frost (CEBRA), David Gianotten (OMA) and ArchDaily’s own, David Basulto. The two selected projects will receive an award of €5,000, and interested architects and designers can submit their projects via ArchDaily.
The award originally began in 2010, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Troldtekt. The competition was open to Danish architecture students and the prompt was new, creative uses for Troldtekt. In 2012, the competition was opened to students internationally. Participants were free to impose colours, shapes and uses, incorporating Troldtekt products in new, innovative ways.
Wood wool as a building material offers good acoustics, unique aesthetics and a healthy indoor climate. As Troldtekt opens the 2015 Wool Wood Awards, architects and designers internationally are invited to make new solutions and uses of wood wool, within and beyond the products of Troldtekt.
