The Forschungsverband der österreichischen Baustoffindustrie, F.B.I. (research society of the Austrian building materials industry: Baumit, BRAMAC, Internorm, Saint-Gobain Isover, Novoferm, Rigips, Wienerberger Ziegelindustrie), and “SOS – Kinderdorf”, in conjunction with the Architekturzentrum Wien, have launched a competition open to architecture students studying at an Austrian University. The participants were required to design a house for the Kinderdorf (children’s village) with a concept based on new pedagogic and sociological criteria.
The particular challenge: The best project is to be realised employing the high-tech products of the prize-giving firm. The Haus der Zukunft (House of the Future) is to be built in 2002 for its prospective new residents on the grounds of the Altmünster SOS-Kinderdorf.
A team of internationally renowned jurors under the chair of Helga Timmermann has selected a winning project from among the 50 submitted to the competition.

The projects are to be presented at the Architekturzentrum Wien from June 07, 2001 through June 18, 2001 in the exhibition “StudentInnen und Studenten Baut. Die Entscheidung” (Students Build. The Decision).
