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.

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.
