On 19 September 2014, the winning projects were presented with the Fritz Höger Award 2014 at the German Architecture Centre in Berlin.

With 504 submitted and more than 70 nominated projects, the Brick Architecture Award has again tremendously exceeded the last competition in 2011 (over 340 submissions).
