Prof. Dr. Mike Schlaich – Award winner 2021 of the Anton-Tedesko Medal


On December 9, 2021, the Anton Tedesko Medal of the IABSE Foundation (Foundation of the International Association for Bridge and Building Construction) was awarded to Prof. Dr. Mike Schlaich in recognition of his exceptional achievements in civil engineering as well as his dedication and commitment to the training of engineers in Berlin. One of the special concerns of Prof. Dr. Mike Schlaich is to awaken the responsibility of the engineers for the design of our building culture and to combine the design and the construction into a harmonious unit.

 

The medal and the CHF 25,000 prize were presented by the chairmen of the Foundation Dr. Alp Caner (Turkey) and Dr. Roman Geier (Austria) at the Design and Construction Department of the Institute for Civil Engineering at the TU Berlin.

 

Prof. Dr. Mike Schlaich also provided an insight into the institute's current research activities through a tour of the faculty's impressive and landmarked Peter-Behrens-Hall.

 

We extend our warmest congratulations to Prof. Dr. Mike Schlaich for this award!
