The Cosentino Group presented the 16th edition of the international Cosentino Design Challenge (CDC). The launch event took place in Madrid on October 5, 2021. During the event the two themes that require research by participants were announced. The CDC jury will be looking for proposals that are environmentally conscious and sustainable, offer conceptual and technical quality and demonstrate innovation.
In the Design category, the theme is “Re-thinking the creative and work space at home.” The aim is for participants to develop innovative designs intended for homeworking.
In the Architecture category, the theme is “The fifth façade: a reflection on the roof.” Proposals in this category must combine energy use with livability, sustainability and design.
The CDC leaves students free to develop their projects with the only requirement that the final project includes some of the innovative surfaces that Cosentino offers the world of architecture and design such as Silestone®, Dekton® and Sensa by Cosentino®.
The submission period for entries began October 1, 2021 and ends on June 1, 2022. The jury will consist of a professor from each collaborating school, an internationally renowned architect or designer and a Cosentino representative. The winner will be announced in June 2022. Each category will have three first prizes of €1,000 (approx. $1,160 USD) each, and three runners-up. Visit www.cosentinodesignchallenge.org for more information.
