Eleven projects across the United States and Canada recently received the prestigious North American Copper in Architecture (NACIA) award from the Copper Development Association (CDA) for their outstanding application of copper and copper alloy material.
Since its launch in 2008, the NACIA awards program has recognized 189 buildings. Past winners include notable buildings such as the Colorado State Capitol, Canadian Parliament buildings, Harvard Law School, Plaza Hotel, and St. Patrick’s Basilica.
“The 2022 NACIA winners exhibit copper’s endless range of application through innovation in new construction and historical restoration projects,” said Larry Peters, Project Manager & Architectural Applications Specialist for CDA. “Answering the growing demand to meet environmental goals using sustainable building materials, the 2022 winners demonstrate a perfect balance of maximizing green material with longevity, creating architectural masterpieces for generations to come.”
The 11 winning projects were selected by a panel of judges based on the presence and use of copper and copper alloys and the significance of the project at hand—whether historic, modern, or otherwise. Winners are listed below, with further details and photos available on copper.org.
