Gold 2017 Europe (ex aequo) – Overview of Projects

The jury decided to award two entries with equal first place. They exemplify a new era in sustainable construction because they are characterized not by stand-alone measures but by holistic concepts that integrate technical, social, economic, and ecological aspects in a balanced way. Both projects are located in a Brussels district for which an urban masterplan has been developed – the Willebroek Canal.

Public Condenser: Building Better Recognition 2017 Europe

Gilles Delalex and his team from Muoto Architecture Studio won the Building Better Recognition for a winning project from a previous competition that has stood the test of time as a particularly successful example of sustainable building. The architects excelled in accommodating infrastructure for eight universities under the roof of a highly economical and cost-efficient building. The project won LafargeHolcim Awards Silver in 2014. The building was completed in 2016 and stands as proof that theory can indeed exist in practice.
