Entries are now invited for the 2015 European Copper in Architecture Awards 17 – a celebration of contemporary architecture and showcase for architects designing with copper and its alloys. The final deadline for receipt of entries is 30th April 2015 and full details are available on the website.
This biennial awards programme continues to grow in stature, with a record 82 entries in 2013. It not only demonstrates exemplary and innovative uses of copper in contemporary design but also offers wider exposure of the very best in architectural projects around Europe, some of which might otherwise go unrecognised.
All entries must incorporate cladding, roofing, or other architectural elements of copper or copper alloys, but judging criteria will essentially be based around the overall architectural qualities of the project. Any scale or type of project can be entered, from major landmark buildings to modest installations.
Architects and critics – drawn from a panel including some of the most influential designers in Europe – will judge all the entries on their architectural qualities from graphic submissions.
Shortlisted projects will be announced and promoted during June 2015, with the opportunity for anyone to vote via copperconcept.org for the Public Choice Award.
The Overall Winner, Commended projects and Public Choice Winner will be announced at a dedicated event later in the year. Shortlisted and winning projects will be widely promoted to an international audience.
The Awards 17 Entry Form can be downloaded from the website, where information and images from previous Awards can also be viewed.
