The UAE pavilion, which investigates using salt as an alternative to Portland cement, was named the winner of the Golden Lion today.

“[It] encourages us to think about the relationship between waste and production at both the local and global scales, and opens to new construction possibilities between craft and high technology,” said the judges.
