For the fifth time, the db-Prize was awarded for exemplary solutions in working with existing buildings. This year, jury member Matthias Burkart presented two equal prizes and six acknowledgements to the winners at the award ceremony on 1 December. The prizes were awarded for renovations, conversions and extensions in which exemplary solutions that go beyond technically established standards were implemented and which also convince with their outstanding design qualities.

Those who could not be present can watch the evening on Youtube and listen to Dr. J├╝rgen Tietz's plea for the wise use of existing buildings:
