The submission makes use of three well-chosen photographs to describe the building in its whole, to highlight a detail, and include a perspective of its interior space, to fully communicate the experience and materiality of this special building. Detailed drawings are descriptive of the structural and material components and also clearly translate the concepts into built form. There are three recommendations Buildner would like to make: first, the inclusion of human figures would be extremely beneficial to communicating the scale of this pavilion and could describe the ways by which a user inhabits the interior and rooftop viewing platform; second, the annotation of the general plans and sections would better communicate the pavilion’s individual spaces and its programmatic components; and third, the presentation would greatly benefit from further dividing up the text to avoid the long-length, book-like format which is quite dense for a single-sheet submission.

Jury feedback summary
The Kiln Tower for the Brickworks Museum in Cham, Switzerland is a prestressed clay-wood structure and the world's first prestressed building in clay. It is a built project designed to document the history of a local brickworks hut - a listed architectural monument. The clay tower enables visitors to gain an overview of the site, allows staff to fire bricks with a kiln, and displays exhibits of the museum. The material is clay in its unfired form and demonstrates the archaic rammed earth building method in a contemporary development. Joints in the exterior walls permit the entry of daylight and highlight the expressed prestressing elements. The construction has a solid, braced wooden ceiling and includes a spiral stair for access to the rooftop viewing platform.
