Cemex, S.A.B. de C.V. announced the winners of the XXIV Edition of the Cemex Building Award at an awards ceremony held in the Colegio Vizcainas, a nonprofit educational institution in Mexico City.
This year’s Cemex Building Award received 637 entries in the Domestic Edition and 36 entries in the International Edition. The participants’ buildings were constructed in Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, the Dominican Republic, Germany, Guatemala, Hungary, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Puerto Rico, Spain, and the United States.
A 17-member jury, comprised of experts from the building industry, scholars, government institutions, and private organisations from eight different countries, evaluated the projects submitted. The winning entries were recognised for the diversity of their technical, conceptual, and aesthetic solutions as applied to their design, construction, or use.
The Cemex Building Award recognises the finest international buildings in three different categories, along with two special prizes. The Domestic Edition recognises Mexican projects in nine separate categories, as well as four special prizes.
