Submissions for NACIA Awards Are Being Accepted Through January

Submissions for the 2016 North American Copper in Architecture (NACIA) awards program are being accepted through the end of January. The Copper Development Association (CDA), in collaboration with the Canadian Copper & Brass Development Association (CCBDA), is looking for the most innovative projects across the U.S. and Canada that are designed with copper and copper alloys. Project categories include Restoration, New Construction and Ornamental Applications.

For more information about the NACIA awards program, or to submit a project visit the Call for Entries page. The submission deadline is Jan. 31, 2016.

Over the years, award-winning copper projects have come in the form of new and restored museums, educational facilities, libraries, firehouses, high-end residential single-family homes and places of worship.

Those recognized in the 2015 awards program included:

  • The New School University Center – a 16-story university building located on 5th Avenue in New York City cladded with 7,500 metal panels, each custom finished to age in a distinguished way and to grow darker brown over time.
  • A Private Residence – an 8,200-square-foot private residence with a copper roof built on a bluff in Lookout Mountain, with its sweeping view of the Chattanooga, Tenn., river valley.
  • The Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas – When the City of Irving lost its bid to build a new, modern stadium for the Dallas Cowboys, the Irving Convention Center was introduced as a re-imagined 100,000-square-feet entertainment palace covered in 150 tons of milled, perforated copper panels.
