Copper in architecture awards.
The 2009 European Copper in Architecture Awards have just been launched. These biannual awards recognise architectural excellence and celebrate the use of copper and its alloys, such as bronze and brass.
The last two decades have seen the transformation or the awards from a UK-based programme into a major, design-led event for projects across Europe (AR November 2007).
This evolution reflects the increasing popularity of copper from an aesthetic, technical and environmental standpoint. Winning and shortlisted projects will be featured in a special issue of the AR, which will be available at the World Architecture Festival (WAF), due to he held in Barcelona during November. Entries will be judged by a panel of architects chaired by Paul Finch, editor emeritus of the Architectural Review and programme director of WAF The closing date for entries is 31 May.
