As part of ArchDaily's commitment to providing our users with the best, most complete coverage of the most relevant information in the architecture world, we have formed partnerships with important organizations--such as the Pritzker Foundation--in order to promote the best practices in the architecture. Now, we would like to share with you CEMEX’s Building Award, an annual competition that recognizes the best in construction, highlighting innovative design, building and construction techniques, across nine different categories.
Past winners have included the Tadao Ando's Roberto Garza Sada Center, Estudio MMX’s CAP House, DVA Arhitekta’s House on Krk Island, and Paredes Pedrosa’s Public Library in Ceuta. The contest calls for entries of projects that were completed the previous year in Mexico and in 10 other countries where CEMEX operates. This year’s winners will be announced in November.
