Tectonica, as the media sponsor of the awards, is particularly involved in the Architecture category, where interesting proposals are gathered from public institutions, companies, start of or teaching centers.
Voting for the preferred solution, anonymous and without registering voters’ data, is open until January 14, 2024.
Green Product Award 2024 – Architecture
The solutions presented in the Architecture category for the Green Product Award 2024 are:
Sahda Salsabila and Xinrui Cai / Master Bio-Integrated Design, University College London, United Kingdom
Panels made from materials of plant origin and waste such as paper with rice flour as a natural binder to create spaces that promote immersive acoustic experiences in urban areas. Manufacturing methods vary, including 3D printing, CNC milling, injection molding and molding.
Department of Experimental and Digital Design and Construction, University of Kassel, Germany
Prototype of a modular construction system for wood using 3D additive technologies and robot-assisted construction.
ARENA modular housing
Angela Valenzuela, Macarena Pinedo and Jan Siebert / Adolfo Ibañez University, Chile
Modular house made of recycled rubber to respond to two challenges in the city of Punta Arenas in Chilean Patagonia: environmental pollution from the tire ‘cemetery’ and a housing crisis for 4,700 families. The design of the house includes a site-specific algorithm for sunlight throughout the year, achieving energy efficiency for the home.
Prototype modular Nest
Juan Gilberto Bugarin Castillo / Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, Spain
Prefabricated modular prototype of solid industrial wood adapted to the steep slopes of Southern California as a proposal compared to building with a light wooden structure for benefits such as acoustics and air quality in the interior space.
Jan Siebert, Macarena Pinedo and Angela Valenzuela / Adolfo Ibañez University, Chile
Expandable modular emergency shelter with a cover of deployable tents made of biodegradable materials. It was designed for the earthquakes that affected southern Chile, so this emergency shelter can be folded, transported and changed depending on the configuration of the territory and the needs of the community.
Modular construction with light structure and charred wood panels as a forest hideout in Wuhan.
Ayşegül Kamanlı / University of Sakarya, Turkey
Design of a mobile and versatile house that reduces carbon footprint with solar panels, green roof, vertical garden and water tanks for rainwater management.
Fella Bouti / Ecotashira LLC, Algeria
Date palm fiber panel from agricultural waste with integrated irrigation system for use in green walls and roofs
Monika Brandić Lipińska / Biotechnology at the Construction Hub at Newcastle University, UK
Proposal for biomanufacturing based on mycelium to strengthen the support for the construction of residential structures in extreme situations without resources, such as the construction of regolith on Mars.
High performance concrete –UHPC– recyclable
Davoud Beheshtizadeh, Mohammad Keyhani and Sina Fard Moradinia / Islamic Azad University – Tabriz Branch, Iran
Special processing with nanotechnology is used to create high strength recycled concrete.
Pei Chi Tasi, Chun Te Lee, Chang Ting Lin and Chao Chun Kung / National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan
Planning a district as a multicultural and ecological urban center.
ZongRu WU / ZONGRUWU, Países Bajos
3D printed PETg molds for concrete formwork, with self-shading patterns based on solar paths that improve thermal efficiency and reduce the need for mechanical cooling and can be reused up to seven times.
Truegrid® Pro Plus
Places called Truegrid in the United States
Heavy duty pavement drainage base made of 100% post-consumer recycled high-density polyethylene, non-toxic and harmless to plants, animals and microorganisms.
alkus AL formwork
alkus GmbH & Co. KG, Germany
High-performance plastic panel for formwork with over 1,500 uses (documented up to 3,000), easy to repair and no waste production with recycled content.
