The TECU® ARCHITECTURE AWARD 2022 once again honours outstanding projects that make exemplary and innovative use of the extensive application possibilities of the TECU® brand. The competition includes the category ‘Realised Buildings’ and a project prize for students.

With the TECU® brand of copper products for designing building envelopes, the manufacturer KME provides architecture with high-quality and aesthetically pleasing materials. The building products, which are environmentally friendly by nature, are particularly committed to sustainability. The copper used to manufacture the durable and fully recyclable TECU® products is 100% recycled material.

The award will be presented for the sixth time in 2021. Previous winners include projects as diverse as the Lisbon Harbour Control Tower by Gonçalo Byrne, the Theresienwiese Service Centre in Munich by Volker Staab Architekten and the switch + information pavilion for the Münster Sculpture Projects by modulorbeat.
