Sono aperte le candidature per la XVIII edizione dell'European Copper in Architecture Award, il premio con cadenza biennale che riconosce il talento e l'eccellenza degli architetti impegnatisi nella realizzazione di edifici in cui sono presenti elementi in rame o in leghe quali il bronzo e l'ottone.
I materiali potranno essere presenti in qualsiasi elemento costruttivo, dai rivestimenti alle coperture, e presentarsi in forma brillante, ossidata e patinata. Potranno concorrere i progetti completati tra gennaio 2015 e aprile 2017 in tutta Europa.
Il vincitore sarà annunciato a giugno 2017 e riceverà una prestigiosa scultura in rame, oltre a vedere la sua opera promossa su scala internazionale.
