The German architect Anna Heringer, specialist for earth and bio-based architecture, is the president of honor of the FIBRA Award. The selection of the submitted projects will be done in 2 steps:

  • The pre-selection jury will identify, on October 1, 2018, the top 40 projects which will be featured in a book and a traveling exhibition
  • The jury of honor will select, in the fall of 2019, a winning project in each of the 5 categories.

The juries will be composed of major international specialists as well as representatives of institutions and actors of the bio-based material sectors. Members of the juries may, if they wish, award special prizes.

The top 40 projects will be unveiled at FIBRA Innovation, an international conference on bio-based materials for professionals and researchers, to be organized on October 3 and 4, 2018 in Paris by BioBuild Concept.

Prizes will be awarded to the 5 winning teams at the Sommet mondial des territoires sur la construction biosourcée (World Summit of Territories on Bio-based Construction), scheduled to be organized by the Île-de-France Region in the fall of 2019 in Paris.
