Austrian Frederick Kiesler Prize for Architecture and the Arts
At the express wish of Frederick Kiesler’s widow Lillian, the Austrian Frederick Kiesler Award for Architecture and Art was endowed in 1997. The award, with a substantial prize-money of 55,000 euros, is presented alternately by the Republic of Austria and the city of Vienna every two years, with the ceremony being organised by the Kiesler Foundation Vienna. An international jury of experts, comprising theorists, artists and architects, bestows the award for “extraordinary achievements in architecture and the arts that relate to Frederick Kiesler’s experimental and innovative attitudes and his theory of ‘correlated arts’ by transcending the boundaries between the traditional disciplines”.
