Armstrong Ceilings and Archi-Europe are very proud to announce the launch of the first international competition for ideas open to students in architecture worldwide.

Ceiling systems are becoming a key element of energy conservation. Designing spaces with materials that can be endlessly recycled and reused contributes to the flexibility and longevity of buildings, and ceiling systems with their high recycled content, recyclability and use of rapidly renewable materials make a significant contribution to effective resource utilization through a full cradle to cradle approach.
