Walter-Henn-Sponsorship Prize 2010 awarded to RWTH Graduate

Islamisches Zentrum in Aachen

This year, the award endowed with a prize money of 2.500 ? honors the Diploma Thesis "Islamic Center in Aachen" by the RWTH graduates Kalliopi Ousoun-Andreou and Stanimir Zhelyazkov (Department of Urban Design and Regional Planning - Univ.-Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Kunibert Wachten / Department of Historic Building Conservation - Univ.Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Raabe). The jury has chosen the Islamic Center as the winner of this year's Walter-Henn-Sponsorship Prize because the work formulates a notable architectural-spatial contribution to a current social issue - to the question of how the dialogue of cultures can be intensified in Germany.
