Armstrong Launches International Student Competition

Students of architecture globally have the opportunity to enter a green building competition run by Armstrong Ceilings.

An international competition for students of architecture has been launched by Armstrong Ceilings.

The inaugural Armstrong Green Buildings Award, in conjunction with global architecture and suppliers’ network, has been introduced to help celebrate ceiling systems becoming a key element of energy conservation.

Students are invited to present concepts using an array of multi-material ceiling solutions in four categories – energy savings, waste management programme, resource management and indoor air quality (interior well being).

Advice on green building solutions is conveniently contained within Armstrong Ceilings’ environmental mini-site

Open to groups of any size as well as individuals, the number of entries is also unlimited and free. Judges include Marie-Claire Regniers, the Belgian architectural journalist; Jacques Allard, Archi-Europe CEO; Ronald Kern, architect and vice-president of the European Architecture Foundation EURAF, and Neil Shaw, vice president of marketing for Armstrong in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

The winners in each category will receive all expenses paid trip to the Batimat internal exhibition in Paris in November to present their project and be presented with their trophy.

Michelle Nicholl, marketing manager for Armstrong in the UK, Ireland and ESA, said: “The competition is designed to recognise the fact that designing spaces with materials that can be endlessly recycled and reused contributes to the flexibility and longevity of buildings.

“Ceiling systems, with their high recycled content, recyclability and use of rapidly renewable materials, make a significant contribution to effective resource utilisation through a full cradle to cradle approach.”

The deadline for entries is October 7th. For more information and to enter, visit
