Cosentino Design Challenge 2024: The Cosentino Design Challenge 2024, an annual architecture and design challenge for students organised by Grupo Cosentino has been recently opened for entries with the aim to support students during their formative stage and to encourage them to research on different conceptual approaches.

Short description

Cosentino Design Challenge 2024 is competitions for architecture and design students recently organised by Grupo Cosentino, now in 18th edition.

Their aim is to support students during their formative stage and to encourage them to research on different conceptual approaches to the layout of spaces and the construction systems defining them.

This research and reflection, along with the themes proposed in each edition, have as their basic principle respect for the environment, reuse and management of waste and the possibility of reusing excess material as high-quality raw material. Grupo Cosentino believes that it is important to foster these reflections during the formative stage of future professionals.

The voting process will be composed of two phases: on-line voting and face-to-face voting.

The presentation of prizes will take place at an official event whose date and location will be made known to finalists and partner schools or centers for higher education at an opportune time.
