Cosentino has officially announced the student winners of the 14th edition of the international Cosentino Design Challenge (CDC). The CDC is a worldwide research and development initiative that challenges architecture and design students to think creatively while incorporating Cosentino’s products in their submissions. This year’s professional competition collaborated with 31 schools and universities globally.

Due to the current global health situation, the deliberation session took place for the first time online. The session was chaired by Santiago Alfonso, Vice President of Communication & Marketing for Cosentino Group and President of the CDC competition. He was joined by professors from the following schools throughout Spain:

  • Escuela de Arte y Superior de Diseño de Pamplona
  • Escuela Artediez de Madrid
  • Escuela Superior de Arte y Diseño de Andalucía, ESADA
  • Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Barcelona, ETSAB
  • Escuela de Arte de Zaragoza

This year, the jury evaluated 213 projects in the Architecture category and 150 in the Design category, submitted by students in Europe, North America and across Asia.

Six projects total, three from the Architecture category and three from the Design category, were selected as the winners and will be awarded 1,000 euros each (approximately $1,560 CAD). In addition, the three runners-up in each category will be awarded a certificate of recognition.
