Statement of the jury
EDC convinces with hyper-modern, pleasantly open and light-flooded architecture, which offers both communicative proximity and interesting sight lines across multiple levels. The holistically developed architectural concept not only represents ecological, but also social, values, thus comprehensively mirroring the company philosophy and at the same time impressively demonstrating the technological logistics expertise of the company.
