Entries are being invited for the 2017 European Copper in Architecture Awards 18, which aims to gather together the most exemplary and innovative uses of the material exhibited in some of Europe’s best buildings. Past winners include Pitágoras Aquitectos for its Platform of Arts and Creativity in Guimarães, Portugal, which used a beautiful copper facade screen on its elevation. The final deadline for receipt of entries is 30 April, which is probably around the same time as Article 50 gets invoked. God knows what effect that will have, so be sure to get your entries in nice and early!
