Architects are being called to showcase their most arresting copper and copper alloy designs as the European Copper in Architecture Awards 18 opens for entries.

Copper and its alloys such as brass and bronze are increasingly used in the word of design thanks to their instantly-recognisable beauty and extraordinary versatility. We would like to draw attention of designers working with copper to enter A' Design Award & Competition.

COPPER IN ALL ITS FORMS

As usual, this issue presents some of the best architecture from around Europe. It showcases the rich variety of surfaces that copper and its alloys can deliver for contemporary design – whether gold, brown, green or blue – all living materials continuing to develop in the local environment. But what stands out from our eleven projects is the wealth of different, sometimes innovative, approaches taken by designers today with how and where they use copper.

The 2016 100% Design Show held in London in September proved yet again that interior designers are still making the most of the properties and colours available through copper, brass and bronze.
