The LafargeHolcim Awards is the most significant global competition in sustainable design. Organized by the LafargeHolcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction, the competition identifies the ideas with the highest potential to tackle today’s challenges to increasing urbanization and to improve quality of life.
The competition is now open for registration until March 21, 2017 at 14:00hrs (UTC). The competition is open for projects in architecture, building and civil engineering, landscape and urban design, materials, products and construction technologies that contribute to the five “target issues” for sustainable construction. The competition has two categories with different requirements:
The juries consist of independent, renowned representatives from science, business and society. They evaluate entries against the “target issues” for sustainable construction.
The five “target issues” defined by the LafargeHolcim Foundation quantify the degree to which buildings contribute to sustainable development. The IUCN Conservation Centre uses only 20 percent of the electricity consumed by a conventional building of its size and creates an exceptional indoor atmosphere that promotes social integrity and interaction. An overriding principle applied throughout the building is economy of means, achieved through lean design, “skin-and-bones” architecture, multifunctional building elements, and functional synergy where combined effects achieve better economic and ecological performance.
