Our objective is to create sustainable buildings that people will enjoy using for a long time. Sustainability and "Baukultur" are mutually dependent and are inextricably linked. Against this backdrop, the DGNB's objective is to improve the design quality of the environment we build around ourselves.
Planning competitions allow the client to identify the most suitable contractor and the design that best fits their requirements by means of a clearly structured, transparent process. The competitive aspect of architect competitions stimulates design quality and allows the building owner to choose the ideal solution from the many different solutions on offer. The result of this design quality boost is a diverse built environment.
