Foundations 21 also features the most exciting moments of the five regional LafargeHolcim Awards ceremonies where a total of 60 trophies were handed over to prize-winners in Nairobi, Kenya (for region Middle East Africa); Marseille, France (for Europe), San José, Costa Rica (for Latin America); Chicago, USA (for North America); and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (for Asia Pacific).
