LafargeHolcim Awards

Recognition of forward-looking projects The LafargeHolcim Awards is an international competition that recognizes innovative projects and future-oriented concepts on regional and global levels. It is designed to encourage architects, planners, engineers and project owners to go beyond balancing environmental performance, social responsibility, and economic growth. Projects and concepts in the fields of architecture, building and civil engineering, landscape and urban design, materials, products and construction technologies.

 

The competition is handled in two stages and a total of USD 2 million in prize money is awarded in each three-year cycle. In the regional phase the best projects and concepts are sought in the five world regions: Europe, North America, Latin America, Africa Middle East and Asia Pacific. In the global phase, the 15 projects that received Gold, Silver or Bronze Awards in the regions automatically qualify for the Global Awards.

 

Independent juries evaluate the entries in the regions and an additional jury assesses the finalists' entries at global level. The juries, hosted by the partner universities of the Foundation, are comprised of highly-regarded members of science, business and society. Current competition The 4th International Awards attracted more than 6,000 entries for construction projects and visions to be pursued in 152 countries on all continents. At regional level, 62 projects were honoured with Awards, Acknowledgement or "Next Generation" prizes. In 2015, Global Awards Gold, Silver and Bronze are conferred to projects in Colombia, Sri Lanka and the USA. Find out more about the Awards winning projects at www.lafargeholcim-awards.org.
