The Eugène Freyssinet Trophy was awarded on 5 March 2014 by the Association Eugène Freyssinet during a ceremony held at the Maison des Arts et Métiers in Paris.
The Association Eugène Freyssinet, with sponsorship from Freyssinet, organised the latest Eugène Freyssinet Trophy awards. The aim of the Trophy is to honour and reward young builders who have advanced the art of building in the same way as Eugène Freyssinet, one of the 20th century's leading inventors in the field of construction. To win the panel's support, the candidate has to instigate an innovation that represents progress in new materials, or a novel use of existing techniques and materials.
The awards went to:
1st prize: Akio Kasuga - Marcel and Philippe Matière
2nd prize: François Cussigh - Romain Ricciotti and Guillaume Lamoureux
Grand Prize: Roger Lacroix - Klaus Ostenfeld
