4th International Holcim Awards seeks projects and visions that contribute to a more sustainable built environment
Entries open in two million dollar sustainable construction competition
The Holcim Awards is one of the most significant competitions in its field in terms of reputation and international scope. The fourth cycle of the competition offering a total of USD 2 million in prize money is now open for entries. The competition seeks leading projects from industry professionals and bold ideas from the “Next Generation” that contribute to sustainability within architecture, building, civil engineering, landscape and urban design, as well as construction materials and technologies.
Entries must be submitted online at www.holcimawards.org by March 24, 2014.
The Holcim Awards (main category) is open to architects, planners,
engineers, project owners, builders and construction firms that showcase
sustainable responses to technological, environmental, socioeconomic and
cultural issues with contemporary building and construction. Projects must have reached an advanced stage of design, have a high probability of execution, and may not have started construction before July 1, 2013.
The competition also seeks visionary projects and bold ideas for the “Next Generation” (young professionals and students category). All authors must be aged between 18 and 30 years of age: (date of birth between July 2, 1982 and March 24, 1996), and the project may not have started construction before July 1, 2013.
Independent jury panels of experts evaluate all entries against the five
“target issues” for sustainable construction which cover economic, social and environmental performance as well as contextual/aesthetic impact, and innovation/transferability. The juries are headed by Jean-Philippe Vassal (for region Europe), Toshiko Mori (North America), Bruno Stagno (Latin America), Howayda Al-Harithy (Africa Middle East) and Rahul Mehrotra (Asia Pacific).
