Holcim Awards 2023 Ceremony

The Holcim Awards 2023 finalists gathered in Venice on November 18-19, 2023 to discover which prizes they would be taking home. In an energising event, a total prize pool of USD 1 million was awarded to projects in 17 countries that exemplify the growing global effort to provide holistic design and construction responses that advance multiple aspects of sustainable development.


The Holcim Awards 2023 were announced at the Teatro Piccolo on November 18, 2023. With its mission of recognizing and promoting projects from around the world that are accelerating sustainable construction, the Holcim Awards has a rigorous selection process driven by independent regional juries. 

Panel Discussion

Two panel sessions featuring the Holcim Awards regional jury chairs offered a comprehensive view of how these exemplary projects contribute to the industry's global knowledge network across regions—Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle East & Africa, and North America.
