"Head of the Global Holcim Awards jury and Dean of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD), Mohsen Mostafavi (USA) explained that the jury process will use the 'target issues' for sustainable construction to evaluate each of the finalist projects based on detailed submissions from each team.

The diverse geographic spread of entries and growth in submissions from developing countries confirms the importance of a more sustainable built environment. The results of the regional phase of the competition will be announced at prize-handover events taking place throughout the second half of 2014:

  • September 5 for Europe
  • September 19 for North America
  • October 3 for Latin America
  • October 17 for Africa Middle East
  • November 14 for Asia Pacific

In 2015, the winners of the regional Holcim Awards Gold, Silver and Bronze will compete with more detailed project submissions for the global prizes."
