EPSE: 2011 Awards Handed Out

Tropicarium – Winner of the 2011 EPSE Sustainability Award

Tropicarium – Winner of the 2011 EPSE Sustainability Award

On 8 November the European Polycarbonate Sheet Extruders held the 5th edition of their EPSE Awards at the Batimat fair in Paris. The annual awards competition recognizes some of the best and most innovative projects that showcase the unique properties of polycarbonate and its wide range of applications.

All 12 entries were displayed on the EPSE website for this year’s jury – coming from diverse backgrounds including architecture, journalism and industry – to decide on the runner-up and winner of the Innovation, Sustainability, and Design award.

The Innovation Award was bestowed to the Catania Shopping Centre in Sicily/Italy for its use of infra-red extrusion technology that permitted a maximum of natural light with minimal heat transfer.

The Sustainability Award went to the Tropicarium at Luisenpark in Mannheim, Germany, for drawing attention to the various benefits of using polycarbonate sheets with an application that both benefitted the exotic inhabitants of the Tropicarium whilst also fully respecting the surrounding environment.

The entries for the Design Award departed from the more practical applications of polycarbonate to highlight the versatility of the material in stunning examples. The winner is the German Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo. Visitors to the Pavilion took a tour of a city’s harbour, gardens, and downtown all created with polycarbonatessheets for a dazzling effect.
