EPSE Awards Ceremony at K2013
Since 2007 EPSE (European Polycarbonate Sheet Extruders), organizes the Awards Competition to recognize the most innovative, most sustainable and the best design projects which were made out of polycarbonate. The aim of this event is to promote the material’s unique properties.
EPSE Awards 2013 is the 6th edition of this internal competition and this year it attracted 16 projects, among them stadiums, public buildings 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 light weight, high transparency and excellent processability polycarbonate is often used in creation of artworks (e.g. sculptures and installations).
The projects were assessed by the panel of experts with backgrounds in architecture, engineering, art, and journalism. The panel of Jurors consists of J.M. Jaspers – architect at Jaspers-Eyers (President of the Jury), D. Dall’Osso – artist, Dipl.-Ing. H. W. Franken – Kunststoffprüfstelle Franken, Prof. Dr. habil. arch. E. Kuryłowicz – architect and Vice-President at Kuryłowicz & Associates Sp. z o.o., V. Leoz-Argüelles – the former Head of the Construction Unit, and U. Mau – Editor in Chief at Plastics Information Europe.
The EPSE Awards Ceremony, where the winning projects will be announced, will take place on the 17 October 2013 at the K Fair in Düsseldorf 2013.
EPSE is a sector group of the European Plastics Converters (EuPC, based in Brussels, Belgium) and represents the major polycarbonate sheet and resin producers across Europe.
