Global Holcim Awards 2015 - LafargeHolcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction

The Global Holcim Awards 2015 winners are projects that focus on turning a decommissioned water reservoir into a park in Medellín, Colombia; rebuilding social fabric through a community library in Ambepussa following Sri Lanka’s civil war; and creating public zones and flood-protection for the island of Manhattan, New York, USA. These exemplary sustainable construction projects were selected from 15 finalist submissions by a jury of independent experts led by Mohsen Mostafavi. The finalists were the regional Awards 2014 winning projects that had been selected from more than 6,000 entries for projects to be built in 152 countries.
