Romanian projects

Image: Exhibition with the Romanian projects submitted to Holcim Awards, presented at the Extraordinary Annual Conference of the Order of Architects (Bucharest, November 2011)


Romania ranked third in Europe in 2011, with 58 submitted projects and visions in the Holcim Awards for Sustainable Construction competition, being overcomed only by Italy (103 projects) and Spain (70 projects).

Even though Romania didn’t win any prize at the Holcim Awards Ceremony in Milan that took place in September 2011, the Romanian specialists in construction submitted 10% from the total projects subscribed in Europe, showing a high interest in sustainable constructions and, consequently, for a sustainable future.

The results were more surprising given the fact that the concept of sustainability on the local market and that at the last edition of Holcim Awards (2008-2009), Romania participated only with 16 projects.

Congratulations to the winners and all local teams who participated in the Holcim Awards Europe competition! We are proud to be part of a global approach for a sustainable future promoted by Holcim Foundation for Sustainable Constructions and we will continue to encourage innovative projects and visions in this regard.
