Awards Shortlist Announced

Nick Hay

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 copperconcept.org – until 30th August and all the winners will be announced shortly afterwards.

The seventeenth iteration of these popular, biennial architectural awards celebrates the growing influence of copper and its alloys on modern design. This year’s judging panel consisted of four architects, all recipients of previous Copper in Architecture Awards: Ulla Hell (PLASMA studio, Italy); Erik Nobel (NOBEL arkitekter, Denmark); Fernando Sá (Pitágoras Aquitectos, Portugal) and Keith Williams (keith williams architects, UK). 

With over 50 entries from 17 countries, the judges initially faced a daunting task and were impressed by the high standards demonstrated across the entries generally, with many examples of good buildings delivering their programmes well and contributing to their surroundings. But eventually they settled on the following ten projects that stood out from the rest, revealing a real diversity of typologies and approaches, and exceptional architectural qualities. 


Alps Villa, Lumezzane, Italy, designed by Camillo Botticini Architetto 

Great James Street, London, designed by Emrys Architects 

Ferry Terminal Buildings, Stockholm, designed by Marge Arkitekter 

Museum of The Franco-Prussian War of 1870 and The Annexation, France, designed by Bruno Mader Architectes 

Euravenir Tower, Lille, designed by LAN 

Rhone Department Archives, Lyon, designed by gautier + conquet & Associes 

Sports Hall, St Martin, Austria, designed by Dietger Wissounig Architekten 

Kunstmuseum, Ahrenshoop, Germany, designed by Staab Architekten 

Trollbeads House, Copenhagen, designed by BBP Arkitekter 

House VDV, Destelbergen, Belgium, designed by GRAUX & BAEYENS architecten

The ten shortlisted projects were exhibited at the Vision London event at the beginning of June, where the Public Choice poll was launched, as part of a drive to generate dialogue with all those interested in architecture, via the copperconcept.org web resource. Here, registered website visitors can vote on-line for their favourite shortlisted Awards entry and each voter will be entered into a draw to win an iPad Mini. The poll will close on 30th August 2015 and the Overall Winner, Commended projects and Public Choice Winner will be announced later in the year.
