Cupric Prix

At the end of last year the European Copper in Architecture Awards bestowed the overall prize on Trollbeads House in Copenhagen. BBP Arkitekter’s refurbishment of a 1960s office building with a stunning perforated golden copper alloy curtain, motorised to rise and fall to reveal or hide the facade behind, lends the penthouse-topped structure a fortified elegance reminiscent of a Venetian Merchant’s House. Commended was Stockholm’s new Ferry Terminal building (right) by Marge Arkitekter, clad in burnished brass. Its mirror-like windows reflect the grandeur of the Royal Palace opposite, its uncompromising sharp orthogonal form contrasting with Nicodemus Tessin’s 1696 Renaissance palace.
