Holcim Awards – Your Choice prizes conferred

The 4th International Holcim Awards – Your Choice voting competition ran from March 16 until May 19, 2015 to find the favorite “Next Generation” sustainable construction projects and received more than 120,000 votes.

In the 4th International Holcim Awards competition, the entries in the “Next Generation” category were more successful than ever before – 25 out of 62 prizes were presented to young professionals and students up to the age of 30.

To celebrate this achievement, the Holcim Foundation launched a community voting competition dedicated to the “Next Generation” winning projects.

The winning projects were honored at the first ever "Next Generation" Awards Lab – a one-day workshop on sustainable construction for all “Next Generation” prize winners of the regional Holcim Awards 2014. The Lab was held on September 24, 2015 in New York City, USA.

The winning projects are:

Our website search engine covers the web pages including project descriptions and expert profiles, PDFs, images and videos on the Holcim 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

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
