  • 2. Introduction Overview Aim and objectives The 4th International Holcim Awards competition encourages building solutions and visions that go beyond convention to address the challenges of sustainability. Registration is open until March 24, 2014 (14:00hrs GMT) at www.holcimawards.org/enter The Holcim Awards promote innovation in sustainable construction through a series of regional and global competitions. Prizes at both levels total USD 2 million for each three-year competition cycle. Project Eligibility The Holcim Awards competition has two categories: Holcim Awards (main category) and “Next Generation” (young professionals and students category). In both categories, the project must not have commenced execution prior to July 1, 2013. There is no limit to the number of projects that any individual or team may enter in the competition. The same project may only be entered in one of the two project categories. The Holcim Awards (main category) is open to projects at an advanced stage of design with a high probability of execution that contribute to the “target issues” for sustainable construction (for more information "target issues" see p.38 of this guide and: www.holcimawards.org/target). All authors must be at least 18 years of age (date of birth March 24, 1996 or earlier). The “Next Generation” (young professionals and students category) is open to visionary projects and bold ideas that contribute to the “target issues” for sustainable construction. All authors must be aged between 18 and 30 years of age (date of birth between July 2, 1982 and March 24, 1996). Entries may be submitted only in English, the principal and legally binding language of the Holcim Awards competition. Submission of entries is only possible using the online entry form. No written applications (hard copy) will be accepted by the jury. If you have any difficulties in using the online entry form, please contact the Helpdesk (helpdesk@holcimawards.org). Competition Regions Entries in the competition are allocated to a region based on the location of the project (not the location of the Main Author). These regions are based on five geographic areas: Europe, North America, Latin America, Africa, Middle East, and Asia Pacific. For submissions where no site has been selected, “Region” is defined by the country of residence of the Main Author. Prizes The total prize money for each cycle of the Holcim Awards competitions (regional and global levels) is USD 2 million. Holcim Awards (main category) The total prize money for each of the five regional Holcim Awards competitions is USD 330,000: • Holcim Awards Gold USD 100,000 • Holcim Awards Bronze USD 30,000 • • Holcim Awards Silver USD 50,000 Holcim Awards Acknowledgement prizes from a total budget of USD 100,000 per region; maximum of 6 prizes, maximum individual prize sum of USD 25,000 Step-by-step guide | page 2

Juries After a centrally-performed technical pre-assessment, individual juries in each of the five regions will evaluate and rank the respective entries. The juries consist of independent, renowned representatives from science, business and society. The regional juries are supported by the partner universities of the Holcim Foundation and coordinated by the Technical Competence Center (TCC) of the Holcim Foundation. The global jury is supported by the TCC. For more information on juries see: www.holcimawards.org/juries Partner Universities The Holcim Foundation counts upon competent support, especially in the technical field. Some of the world’s leading technical universities led by the Technical Competence Center (TCC) act as partners to the Holcim Awards. They define the evaluation criteria to be used for the competitions and host the panels that judge the entries. Members of the TCC (marked *) and partner universities are: • Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA, USA* • Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich), Switzerland* • Universidade de São Paulo (USP), Brazil • • • Tongji University (TJU) in Shanghai, China* University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in Johannesburg, South Africa Universidad Iberoamericana (UIA) in Mexico City, Mexico • Ecole Supérieure d’Architecture de Casablanca (EAC), Morocco • American University of Beirut (AUB), Lebanon • • • Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Bombay), in Mumbai, India Tsinghua University (THU) in Beijing, China University of Melbourne, Australia Step-by-step guide | page 3

Construction costs Please use US dollars (USD). The construction costs should include the following elements: Structure - construction works: including excavation, foundations, external walls, internal walls, floors and ceilings, roofs, structural fittings and other construction-related activities such as site equipment, scaffolding, and demolition work. 4 5 Gross floor area (GFA) Total of the floor areas of all floor plan levels of a building in square meters (m2). Structure - services: including sewage, water and gas systems, heat supply systems, air treatment systems, power installations, telecommunications and other communications systems, transport systems, functionrelated equipment and fittings, building automation and other services-related work. Footprint area The surface space occupied by the outer boundary of the construction in square meters (m2). Building height The top of the roof is considered the highest point of the construction/building and should be expressed in relation to ground level (m) and potentially also to sea level (m asl). In case of a building complex you can enter the range from [.....] to [.....]. 6 7 Building depth The bottom edge of the basement is considered the deepest point of the construction/building and should be expressed in relation to ground level (m) or sea level (m asl). Further relevant key figures Enter further relevant key figures to specify your project, such as: Envelope surface: comprises the area of the façades and the roof. It can be differentiated into glazed and closed portions. Net floor plan area (NFA): the useful area between delimiting structural components with the exception of the footprints of door and window openings, recesses and niches in delimiting structural components. Utilization area (UA): that part of the net floor plan area that serves the building’s useful purpose. Floor area: the total of the relevant areas of all stories ­ considered as stories proper. The gross floor area is determined on the basis of a building’s exterior d ­ imensions. Further relevant key figures: depending on the type of project other comparative ratios could be quoted eg: n ­ umbers of users:inhabitants, or area indices such as GV:GFA (Gross Volume to Gross Floor Area) and NFA:GFA (Net Floor Area to Gross Floor Area), etc. 8 Materials Enter a short description of the materials used for your project.

An image file can be composed of two or more images and contain texts and tables provided readability is assured. The juries will receive all data provided in both printed and digital format. The printed copies consist of two A3 pages including all images, texts and project information; similar to the confirmation PDF you can download after submission of your application. The approximate image sizes for printed copies are: images #1 and #2: 127mm x 96mm and all further images: 63mm x 46mm. Key images Key images are presented in a larger format and should therefore be the most compelling visual representations of the project. Only two images may be uploaded as Key images. Image formats Images are presented in landscape format in the proportion 4:3 (eg: 9000 x 6750, 4500 x 3375, 2400 x 1800 pixels). Portrait format images or landscape images not in ratio 4:3 may be used, but will not utilize the full image space available. Images must be in JPG, PNG, BMP or TIF format. AutoCad or PDF files are not permitted. All images must use the RGB color set. Images in CMYK color set will be converted into RGB, but may lose resolution and not render colors as accurately. Image size Images may not exceed 9000 x 6750 pixels or 15MB. File sizes should be in high-resolution, sufficient to produce clear images in the application form (at least 2400 x 1800 pixels or 3-5MB recommended as a minimum). Please allow sufficient time to upload large image files, particularly with slower Internet connections. Image file names must contain only standard Latin characters. Data transfer rate Depending on the data transfer rate of your Internet connection, the upload process may take up to several minutes - so please have some patience.

Page 1 “Target issues” “Target issues” for sustainable construction The Holcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction is committed to the “triple bottom line” concept, which asserts that long-term and sustainable progress requires the balanced achievement of economic development, environmental performance and social advancement. Based on this concept and to make sustainable construction easier to understand, evaluate and apply, the Holcim Foundation and its renowned partner universities identified a set of five “target issues” for sustainable construction, which serve as evaluation criteria for the Holcim Awards and as a basis for all activities of the Holcim Foundation.     Innovation and transferability – PROGRESS The project must demonstrate innovation at the forefront of sustainable construction. Breakthroughs and trend-setting approaches, irrespective of scale, must be transferable to a range of other applications. Innovative concepts regarding design, integration of materials and products, structure, enclosure and building services. Outstanding approaches regarding construction technology and processes, operation and maintenance. Contributions to the disciplines of architecture, urban and landscape design, civil, urban and environmental engineering and other related fields pertaining to construction. Long-term monitoring to evaluate the fulfillment of the initial expectations and goals. Dissemination of knowledge (project documentation and communication, education and training).     Ethical standards and social equity – PEOPLE The project must adhere to the highest ethical standards and support social equity at all stages of construction, from planning and building processes to long-term impact on the fabric of that community. The project has to provide an advanced response in terms of ethical and social responsibility. Adherence to ethical standards in all phases of the project's life cycle. Contributions to the formation of socially viable environments and the values of communities. Participation of stakeholders (client, users, neighborhood, local authorities, non-governmental organizations and others). Quality of working conditions in the suppliers’ workshop, on site and during operation (compensation, safety, basic needs, gender issues). Political transparency and correctness.

  • 40. Page 2 “Target issues” Environmental quality and resource efficiency – PLANET The project must exhibit a sensible use and management of natural resources throughout its life cycle, including operation and maintenance. Long-term environmental concerns, whether pertaining to flows of material or energy, should be an integral part of the built structure. Low environmental impacts over the project's life cycle. Energy and material efficiency in construction, operation and maintenance. High ratio of renewable energy to fossil energy in construction, operation and maintenance. Land use efficiency. Robust products and technologies.     Economic performance and compatibility – PROSPERITY The project must prove to be economically feasible and innovative as far as the deployment of financial resources is concerned. Funding must promote an economy of means and be compatible with the demands and constraints encountered throughout the construction’s life span. Innovative models for financing. Financial resources over the project's life cycle and their regional impact. Flexibility with regard to future changes (user, ownership, laws and regulations). Robustness to economic conditions (interest rates, taxes, inflation). Economy of resources deployed in construction.     Contextual and aesthetic impact – PROFICIENCY The project must convey a high standard of architectural quality in the w ay it addresses cultural and physical factors. With space and form of utmost significance, the construction must have a lasting aesthetic impact on its surrounding environment. Improvement of existing contextual conditions responding to the natural and human-made contexts. Interdependencies of landscape, infrastructure, urban fabric and architecture. Cautious restoration and alteration of the built environment. Programming strategies (use, flexibility, multiplicity of functions, change). Architectural quality and its aesthetic impact (space, form, light, ambiance). For more details see: www.holcimawards.org/target Step-by-step guide | page 40
