With his delicate designs for spatial structures and innovative concepts, Asif Khan is considered one of the world’s most exciting architects. He constructed the VantablackPavilion for the 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea – thanks to nano-technology, the building's innovative paint absorbs 99 percent of visible light, which creates an impression similar to the vastness of space. The German Design Council honored the London-based architect by awarding him the prestigious Architects of the Year special prize at the ICONIC AWARDS 2018: Innovative Architecture competition awards ceremony. As a first-time member of the jury, Khan will be responsible this year for selecting the ICONIC AWARDS 2019: Innovative Architecture competition prize winners in the categories: Architecture, Interior, Product, Communication, Concept and Innovative Material.
