IDOM wins award at the LEAF Awards 2018
In the “Best Regenerative Impact” category
The annual LEAF Awards bring together an audience of more than 100 distinguished names from the elite architectural design community from all around the world, such as Perkins & Will, Aedas, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, David Chipperfield, Foster & Partners and ZHA Architects.
The purpose of the LEAF Awards is to recognise buildings or future projects which are or will be, according to a jury led by the famous architect Sir Peter Cook and the director of the prestigious Bartlett School of Architecture, a reference for the future of architecture.
The ceremony of this 2018 edition, which was held in Frankfurt on October 18th, among projects from the 5 continents, saw the Best Regenerative Impact Award go to IDOM’s project for the University of Bambey. In the jury’s own words:
“Due to its exceptional contribution in terms of community impact, the sustainability in its construction and the way in which waste was managed (…) with an elegant architecture rarely seen when using local materials”
The award was collected by Federico Pardos Auber and Javier Perez Uribarri, the leading architects of the project.
This is the second recognition this project has had, after its award in the XIV Biennale of Spanish Architecture held on July 19th.
