Cemex has announced the 61 finalists for the International Edition of the 2017 Cemex Building Award, which recognises the best architecture and construction worldwide every year.

The International Edition gathers the winning projects from the different National Editions of the Cemex Building Award. This year, 17 countries issued a call for finished projects that will participate in the International Edition’s five categories and four special awards.

Finalists from Colombia, Costa Rica, the Czech Republic, the Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Guatemala, Haiti, Latvia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Poland, Puerto Rico, Spain, the United States, and the United Arab Emirates will attend the ceremony where Cemex will reveal the winners.

The current edition stands out for the projects’ less conventional schemes, exploring and crossing new frontiers between construction and architecture. The high number of registrants in this edition’s Sustainable Building category underscores the growing effort to create projects that foster the protection and preservation of natural resources and sustainable development.

"The Cemex Building Award has continued to break new ground and barriers—becoming a benchmark for best practices in international construction. Year after year, architects, engineers, and builders worldwide develop projects utilizing advanced techniques, increased quality, and superior products to participate in this Award," the company said.

Among the finalists are the Media Library of Vitrolles in France, the Exupery International School in Latvia, an Aquapark in Poland, a Sufism Sanctuary in the United States, an Arqueopark in the Czech Republic, a cable-stayed bridge over the Ozama River in the Dominican Republic, and the Pharmax Pharmaceuticals building in the United Arab Emirates.
