Peter Schreibmayer Awarded IAHH Gold Medal for Lifetime Contribution To Humane Habitat Movement

Prof. Dr. Techn. Peter Schreibmayer, Technical University of Graz, Austria honoured with IAHH Gold Medal for life-time contribution to humane habitat movement

Dr. Peter Schreibmayer, Technical University of Graz, Austria was honoured with the 1st IAHH Gold Medal of the International Association for Humane Habitat (IAHH) for life-time contribution for the development of humane habitat movement. He said “Humane habitat thrives on individual creativity and drive, on the little interventions, changes and improvements that are feasible by the people. This is grass-roots urbanism, where citizens start to make the city their own and to change it in the little steps.”

Prof. Akhtar Chauhan, Founder President IAHH said Prof. Peter Schreibmayer has been involved with research in experimental architecture, elementary vernacular architecture and innovative building construction. He has conducted joint study programmes with Rizvi College of Architecture on the issues of earthquake resistant rural housing in Latur district and slum housing and community development in Mumbai. “We are greatly indebted to Prof. Schreibmayer for his immense contribution in promoting the cause of humane architecture, appropriate and innovative technologies in building construction, affordable housing and sustainable development. This bridge of friendship between Austria and India will be used by students and architects of both the countries in years to come “said Prof. Chauhan.
