EPSE Awards 2013 is the 6th edition of this internal competition which this year attracted 16 projects. Among the submitted projects there are stadiums, public buildings, innovativ epolycarbonate systems and artistic installations. All the nominees are a perfect illustration of a wide variety of areas in which polycarbonate may be applied. It is not only used in construction and architecture (e.g. roof glazings’, claddings, canopies, skylights, façades) but thanks to its lightweight, high transparency and excellent processability polycarbonate is often used in creation of artworks (e.g. sculptures and installations).
The projects will be assessed by the panel of experts with backgrounds in architecture, engineering, art, and journalism. The panel of Jurors consists of the J.M. Jaspers – architect at Jaspers – Eyers (President of the Jury), D. Dall’Osso – artist, Dipl. Ing. H. W. Franken - Kunststoffprüfstelle Franken, Prof. dr hab. arch E.
