Winners of 2014 North American Copper in Architecture Awards

Every year, the Copper Development Association recognizes and promotes projects for their outstanding use of architectural copper and copper alloys by presenting the North American Copper in Architecture Awards. Since civilization, copper has been used because of its beautiful finish, durability, performance, long life, and recyclability. Past winners have included schools, libraries, places of worship, performing arts centers, recreational facilities, museums, and residential and municipal buildings. Applications in design include wall cladding, architectural accents, roofing, interior design and ornamental purposes. There are three categories for nomination: restoration and renovation, new construction, and interiors and ornamental design. Each project is judged on its sustainable practices, copper system design, integration of copper alloys, craftsmanship, and innovation and historical restoration. In order to be considered for an award each submission must meet three criteria: made in the past three years with substantial amount of copper, located in the United States or Canada, and the copper manufacturer must be a North American company. Take a look at the winners of the 2014 North American Copper in Architecture Award Winners.
