Seeking international projects that combine sustainable construction practices with architectural excellence, the LafargeHolcim Awards are open for entries to their 6th cycle through February 25, 2020. The Awards offers a total of $2 million USD in prize money to projects and concepts from architecture, engineering, urban planning, materials and construction technology, and related fields. The LafargeHolcim Awards accept submissions in two categories: the Main Category and the Next Generation category. The Main Category considers sustainable construction projects at an advanced stage of design with a high probability of realization, but construction/fabrication must not have started before January 1, 2019. The Next Generation category seeks visionary design concepts and bold ideas at a preliminary stage of design, including design studio and research work. To participate in this category, entrants may not be older than 30 years of age. Students and young professionals are also welcome to enter the Awards' Main Category with projects that have reached a more advanced stage of design.
