An award for ICE Krakow – The Plan Awards 2015

The design of the ICE Krakow Congress Centre gained another award in Italy! The platinum A’Design Award received by ICE Krakow in Como in July this year was followed by a distinction granted by the prestigious Italian architectural magazine THE PLAN. In THE PLAN AWARDS 2015 competition, ICE Krakow was distinguished as the best architectural design completed in the last few years in the Business category.

THE PLAN AWARDS 2015 is an international competition of designs from all parts of the world in several categories, including House, Housing, Education, Health, Culture, Production, Renovation, Business and Interior. One award and one distinction were granted in each category.

A few hundred designs submitted for the competition were evaluated during the presentation in Milano Congressi, Milan, by an international jury that comprised, among others, the following architects: Stefano Pujatti (Elasticospa), Cristian de Portzamparc, Yansong Ma (Mad Architects), Mario Cucinella, Partic Stremnler (Benish Architekten), Odile Decq (ODBC / Odile Decq, Benoite Cornette) and Filippo Pagliani (Park Associati).

The design of the ICE Krakow Congress Centre – the only representative of Poland during the competition – was selected by the jury for the final presentation stage in the Business category (congress and business centres). In the final stage of this category, the Polish design competed with six other designs: WIPO-OMPI Salle de Conference, Geneva (Benish Architekten), Sevilla Congress Centre, Sevilla (Guillermo Vazquez Consuegra), Gazprom Business Centre (Exclusiva Design), Dakar Congress Center, Dakar (Tabanlioglu Architects), Astana Media Center (Tabanlioglu Architects), Segreen Business Park, Segrate (Lombardini 22).

After the final presentations in the Business category, the jury distinguished two designs: the Dakar Congress Center (main award) and the ICE Krakow Congress Centre (distinction). It is already the second award granted to architects from the Ingarden & Ewy office in Italy in the recent period.

In July this year, the ICE Krakow Congress Centre received the platinum A’Design Award in Como, Italy.
