Life Challenge 2021
The Baumit Life Challenge is a competition, where the best façades of Europe, created with Baumit systems, are recognised. A jury of 13 international architects have nominated 36 finalists in 6 categories from 26 countries. The winners will now be chosen and announced on 22nd April 2021 in Valencia, Spain at the Hemisferic.
People now inhale up to 13.5 kg of indoor air and 1.5 kg of fresh air per day – with such large quantities, the quality of the air is vitally important. Air humidity, purity and temperature have a crucial impact on our quality of life, and consequently our health.
After two years of intensive research analysing and evaluating 5 million data points, it is clear that construction methods and building materials have a significant impact on health and quality of life.
As we start to measure the time towards Friday 29th March 2019 in weeks and days, rather than months and years, it seems incomprehensible to think that we still do not know what this will mean for business in the UK or for the country as a whole.
