Cosentino Design Challenge now open to Canadian students


Cosentino continues to be a leader when it comes to committing to the education of the next generation of architects and designers. The Cosentino Design Challenge is now in its 12th edition and is encouraging Canadian architecture and design students to get innovative with their submissions.

The international competition is open to all Canadian students currently enrolled in architecture and design programs, offering them a chance to participate in an international, professional competition – a significant component of the A&D industry.


Winner of CDC11 Architecture Category (‘Cosentino & Travelling’): “Stone Quarry” by Angel Cobo (Superior Technical School of Architecture of Madrid)


Composed of two categories, this 12th edition Architecture brief asks students to reflect on “Cosentino & Performing Arts”, and the Design brief is centred on “Cosentino and light”. In both categories, participants have complete freedom in developing their final project, which must include a product manufactured by Cosentino: Silestone natural quartz surface, Dekton ultracompact surface and/or Sensa granite.




The following criteria will be taken into account during the final judging process:

  • Conceptual quality
  • Technical quality
  • Reflection in theme
  • Creativity
  • Innovation
  • Respect for the environment

Throughout the competition, students are encouraged to visit Cosentino Centres to discover the company’s wide range of products. Cosentino currently has five Centres countrywide located in Standstead, Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.

The project submission period recently opened on October 1, 2017 and closes on June 1, 2018. All projects must be submitted in digital format via the competition website.

The judging panel will announce the winning projects and their designers next June. Three winners will be selected for each category, who will be awarded €1,000 each, with special mentions and global recognition.
