MCLEAN, Va. — Eleven building 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 architectural copper and copper alloys.  

Since its launch in 2008, the NACIA awards program has recognized 189 copper buildings in the U.S. and Canada, including notable buildings such as the Colorado State Capitol, Harvard Law School, The Plaza Hotel, and St. Patrick's Basilica. 

‎“‎The 2022 NACIA winners exhibit copper’s endless range of applications through innovation in new and historical restoration projects,” ‎said Larry Peters, project manager and 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 materials and longevity, creating architecture 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 the significance of the project at hand — whether historic, modern, or otherwise. A complete list of winners can be found below with further details and photos available on
