Praksis Arkitekter has been awarded 500,000 DKK as winners of Nykredit's Architecture Awards, the most prestigious architectural distinction in Scandinavia. Founded in 1987 by the Nykredit Foundation, the awards also honored two practices with 250,000 DKK Prizes: the Motivation Award, won by ADEPT, is “an encouragement to continue and further develop an already obvious talent” seen in young architectural practices, while the Sustainability Award, which was introduced in 2016, was won this year by Leth & Gori. Speaking about winners Praksis Arkitekter, chairman of the prize committee Kristian Lars Ahlmark remarked that "Throughout their work there is a great understanding and knowledge about architectural and craft skill and tradition as well as a very clear grasp of the sensual and poetic." The award continues an excellent year for Praksis Arkitekter, who won both the Dreyers Fond Prize and the 2017 Concrete Construction Prize and Utzon Statuette in March.
