The aim of the contest is to support the development of concrete architecture, concrete technology and concrete construction and improve the reputation of concrete as a domestic construction material.

“In modern buildings, concrete is often the helping hand, the connecting link that helps integrate different materials into a whole,“ said Kalle Suitslepp, chairman of board of the Concrete Association of Estonia. “Quite a few interesting buildings have been completed and will be completed, and our contest will help introduce these to a wider audience,“ Suitslepp added.

The deadline for submitting works to the contest is 1 December 2015.

The winner will be announced on the national Concrete Day in March 2016.
