The winners have been chosen: Architects from 45 countries submitted a total of 589 projects for the DETAIL Prize 2012. This is the fifth time that the contest, which aims to highlight impressive projects from around the world, has been held. Once the editorial team had carried out its initial selection, the top-class jury and 3,894 DETAIL readers chose their favourites: The jury selected the project Residence Vitznau by Lischer Partner Planer AG as their winner, while the Readers' Prize went to Portuguese architects' office Pitágoras for its project Platform of Arts and Creativity. On 22 November 2012, both projects will be honoured at the award ceremony at the Schlosshotel im Grunewald in Berlin.
