Audi Urban Future Award Goes to J. MAYER H

The first of what German manufacturer Audi hopes to be a series of Urban Future Awards has been won by architect firm J. MAYER H for their way of depicting a city and mobility in the year 2030. The company won EUR100,000 for their project.

The winning project, together with those of the other four firms which took part in the competition (Alison Brooks Architects, Bjarke Ingels Group, Cloud9 and Standardarchitecture) will be on display until the end of September at the Scuola Grande della Misericordia in Venice.

The goal of the competition which kicked off in May was to develop the city of the future, which combines mobility, architecture and the city itself. Audi was an active participant in the event, hosting events during which the participating firms received tips and tricks from Audi's experts from Technical Development, Design, and Brand and Corporate Strategy.

“The architects have developed fascinating concepts, models and designs along the theme of urban planning for the future,
” said Rupert Stadler, Audi CEO.

“That is of great relevance not only to urban planners but, in the context of the future of individual mobility, also to an internationally active automobile manufacturer such as Audi.”

According to the jury which decided the winner, the J. MAYER H project created points of departure for a completely new urban aesthetics.

“By crossing and overlapping the real with the virtual, our perception of urban spaces is not only guided towards previously unimagined new forms, but the city itself is also fundamentally transformed”,
says Christian Gartner, member of the Stylepark and Curator of the exhibition.
