6th Awards Cycle: 2020-2021

6th Awards Cycle: 2020-2021

When will the results of the competition be announced?

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the results of the regional phase of the Awards competition will now be announced in 2021.

The Awards juries in five regions of the world (Europe, North America, Latin America, Middle East & Africa, and Asia Pacific) select the competition winners using the “target issues” for sustainable construction. Each regional jury will go ahead as a virtual panel and consists of independent, renowned representatives from science, business and society that were to meet in person.

The Project Contact of short-listed projects will be contacted following the jury meeting of the respective region to complete the project verification process. The prize allocated will not be disclosed until the prizes are handed over in 2021.

All Main Authors, Further Authors, and Project Contacts will be informed via email of the competition results, which will also be communicated through print, electronic and social media.

Search Help

Our website search engine covers the web pages including project descriptions and expert profiles, PDFs, images and videos on the LafargeHolcim Foundation website. To improve your search results, here are some tips:

Basic search

Our search defaults to term-pairing AND. If you search sustainable construction - then the search engine will look for any items containing sustainable AND construction


photovoltaic OR solar

Looks for either word


(clay OR mud) AND (school OR university)

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching


geothermal -heating

Excludes a term from results, automatically ANDs other terms listed


"zero carbon"

Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase or combination

Wildcards (one or more characters)


Asterisk (*) matches any word or phrase - so archit* will find architect, architecture, architectural as well as architrave
