Holcim Foundation Teams With International Union of Architects

The International Union of Architects (UIA) and the Holcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction seek to cooperate to inspire better sustainability performance in planning, architecture and building.

The global Holcim Awards competition for architects, engineers and related professions will raise its profile through closer ties to the UIA network of national architects’ associations. The Holcim Awards aims to progressively form a worldwide community of recognized practitioners of excellence in sustainable construction.

The competition celebrates groundbreaking and more sustainable approaches to designing and building houses, working environments and infrastructure, and also includes a “Next Generation” category for young professionals to develop “blue sky” concepts that point the way to the future.

The UIA Working Program on Sustainable Architecture assists the architectural profession in making an effective contribution to the challenges of sustainability on the local and global scale, and makes available architectural expertise in addressing sustainability. MD
