Dezeen promotion: Danish acoustic panel manufacturer Troldtekt is inviting architects and designers to submit projects featuring innovative uses of wood wool panels for the chance to win €5,000 (+ slideshow).
Troldtekt's acoustic panels are used to absorb sound and can be applied internally or externally.
The company has asked architects and designers to submit projects in the form of photographs and drawings from one or more of their own buildings where wood wool panels have been visibly incorporated in the architectural design – regardless of the manufacturer.
A jury will choose the two best projects – one that uses Troldtekt cement-bonded wood wool panels and another that incorporates wood wool panels manufactured by any other company.
They will assess the projects based on their aesthetic quality and originality, and on how the use of wood wool panels supports and enhances the architectural design.
The two designers who submit the most creative and innovative use of the acoustic panels will each be awarded a prize of €5,000 (approximately £3,700).
Buildings that feature Troldtekt's panelling include Atuarfik Hans Lynge School in Greenland, and London's Westminster City college.
Entries are being accepted through the Archdaily website from 14 September to 16 October 2015. Participants must upload their project with a minimum of two photographs, one detailed drawing, as well as a brief summary description of the project.
