HiLo has been submitted for this year’s European Regional Holcim Awards for Sustainable Construction. The jury has already met and the final winners are expected to be announced in September. You can view our submission here.
The Holcim Awards competition recognizes innovative projects and future-oriented concepts on regional and global levels. They are designed to encourage architects, planners, engineers and project owners to go beyond conventional notions of sustainable construction in their work and to harmonize economic, ecological and social concerns. Projects and concepts in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, civil engineering, mechanical engineering and related fields are eligible for entry in the competition. Each competition cycle spans three years, from announcement to completion and a total of two million US dollars in prize money is awarded. (via Holcimfoundation.org)
