LafargeHolcim Foundation Prize Winning Projects in Sustainable Construction

Project Summary

Reinvigorated waterways for transportation and sustainable development

The project is designed for the UNESCO World Heritage listed Pantanal Conservation Area, a complex landscape encompassing 200,000 square km of lakes, rivers and wetlands in the border area between Bolivia, Brazil and Paraguay.

The strategic importance of the area for the South American interior is identified, both through an investigation of its potential as a transportation route between the ocean harbors and the inland.
