Cosentino is once again seeking to promote the talent and creativity of future international architecture and design professionals.

One year on, Cosentino is launching a call for entries for the Cosentino Design Challenge (CDC), which is celebrating its thirteenth edition.

The aim of this competition is to encourage students from all over the world to create sustainable and innovative projects that boast outstanding conceptual and technical quality, with a creative and technical emphasis placed on the topics set for each category.
