Trophy | Building Award | CEMEX
Media Center


The statue that has been given since the year 2000 to the winners of the CEMEX Building Award is a unique piece of art created by the renowned Mexican sculptor Miguel Angel Gonzalez.


It is made up of materials that are apropos to nature – such as black marble - and others from man’s inspiration – such as concrete – which thereby alludes to the inspiration of mankind to use materials within reach and transform these into versatile elements of expression for architecture, construction, and design which are manifested in projects that meet the highest standards of efficiency and sustainable construction.
Each winner receives a trophy created solely and especially for that project
