The Lacobus contest makes an award each year to the best architectural restoration training project presented by the students of three schools of architecture in France, Spain and Germany. Since 2003, at the initiative of French national research and safety institute INRS, the contest has included making allowance for health and safety from the design stage onwards. Every year since 1994, the Ecole nationale d’architecture of Clermont-Ferrand (ENSACF) and the faculties of architecture of La Coruna (Spain) and Regensburg (Germany) have held a design contest among their final-year students. The task: to design a project related to renovation.
