Copper Architecture Awards to be Showcased at International Convention of Architecture

The European Copper in Architecture Awards are set to feature at the 11th International Convention of Architecture, with a special exhibition showcasing the ten shortlisted projects.  Erik Nobel, of NOBEL Arkitekter, will also be presenting on his firm’s Covering of the Runic Stones, which received a Special Commendation in the Awards.

The Runic Stones are a UNESCO World Heritage site; marking Denmark’s transition to Christianity in 965, they are seen as a symbol of the country’s birth.  Harnessing the natural beauty and durability of bronze, NOBEL Arkitekter designed covering structures that would both protect and showcase their contents.

An international call for tender on Budapest’s planned Museum Quartier is expected to be announced soon after the convention, lending it the theme ‘architecture and culture’.

Organised by the architectural periodical METSZET and the Association of Hungarian Architects, the International Convention will take place on 8th March in Budapest.  Erik Nobel (speaking at 11:45) is joined on the programme by fellow European architects Bolle Tham and Martin Videgård of Sweden, Mario Botta of Switzerland and Hungary’s Zsolt Vasáros, alongside other experts in the field of innovative architecture.
