An international team of architect judges has shortlisted ten projects for the 2015 European Copper in Architecture Awards, a celebration of the very best in contemporary architecture. Voting for the Public Choice Award is now open – via – until 30th August and all the winners will be announced shortly afterwards.

Copper in Architecture are very pleased to announce that we will be displaying the shortlisted projects for the European Copper in Architecture Awards at VISION LONDON, which will be held at Olympia, London on the 2 and 3 June.
