The aim of the contest is to contribute to the architectural concrete, concrete construction and concrete technology development, as well as to raise the reputation of concrete as a domestic building material.

This year has concrete been more widely used,” says the chairman of the Concrete Association of Estonia Tiit Roots. „This year, a number of important buildings will be established. We expect them to take part in our competition,” added Roots.

The contest is open to entries including:
