Pfann-Ohmann Preis

Award for outstanding drawing performances

Foundation for excellence and innovation in architectural graphic work

The Pfann Ohmann prize foundation was established in 1993 to recognise excellence and innovation in architectural graphic work done by students in the course of their architecture studies at TU Wien.

The aims of the foundation include the appointment, preservation, and maintenance of archives for the life work of the architects O.Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr.techn. Hans PFANN (1890-1973) and O.Prof. DDDr.h.c. Friedrich OHMANN (1858-1927). The latter’s daughter, Pfann’s wife, and the prize initiator, Wilhelmine PFANN (1893-1990), is thus also honoured by the foundation.

The Pfann Ohmann Prize funds an annual award sum of € 4000. It is divided equally between two award winners, which are selected by a prominent jury consisting of the Vice Rector for Digitization and Infrastructure of the TU Wien, the Dean of the Faculty of Architecture and Spatial Planning and the heads of the individual institutes.

The prizes are then formally awarded by the vice rector of Digitization and Infrastructur Prof. DDR. Josef Eberhardsteiner of the TU Wien in a ceremony that will take place on the 22nd of October 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. at the Kuppelsaal.
