"The submitted works impress with inspiring creativity, intelligent architectural conception, stringent implementation and, last but not least, bear the signature of specialists in building in existing contexts. That is us interior architects," says bdia President Pia A. Döll, "We do not only pursue the goal of sustainable planning and building, our profession embodies it! For decades we have been finding answers to questions that other disciplines have only recently begun to ask. But many challenges still lie ahead, which the DAT23 impressively illustrated."
