Foundations 14 – Celebrating global prizes


January 2013
"Foundations 14" is dedicated to the activities of the Holcim Foundation over the past year including the Global Holcim Awards Gold prize hand-over that took place in December 2012 in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The winning project by Diébédo Francis Kéré is exemplary in terms of all facets of sustainability - and illustrates how "the seeds we plant today are that which will be harvested tomorrow."

"Foundations 14" also provides an overview of the five further winners that were acknowledged at global prize handover events held around the world.
