"Glass is a trend in architecture and urban planning for the next several decades. It is eco-friendly, stylish, and very beautiful. We initiated and supported the nomination of The Futureglass Prize within the WAF 2022 to honor architects who boldly experiment with glass and demonstrate its wide possibilities for the most complex architectural solutions," says Leonid Lazebnikov, CEO of Aestech.

The Futureglass Prize is a special award of the World Architecture Festival 2022, which is designed to celebrate the best use of glass in architecture. The award partner is the Aestech company, a manufacturer of insulated glass units with higher stiffness for modern architectural solutions. The winner will be announced at the end of November during the WAF 2022 gala dinner in Lisbon.

The World Architecture Festival is the main event for architects from all over the world. It is held for the 15th year in a row and is the largest global architectural event. During the festival, architectural projects from around the world are presented and the best ones are chosen in several categories.
