2012 Metal Building Design Awards Highlight Alcoa Reynobond Composite Materials

Alcoa Reynobond composite materials were highlighted in three of the award-winning projects in the 2012 Metal Architecture magazine Metal Building Design Awards, which marks a stunning success of metal composite materials designed to result in exquisite architectural designs.

The three winning projects include:

  • Judges Award featuring “The Perry and Marty Granoff Center for the Creative Arts at Brown University”. This building envelope features Alcoa's Reynobond zinc as well as aluminum composite material panels.
  • Grand Prize Winner/Smooth Metal Panels attribute ‘Chihuahua’s Businessmen Foundation (FECHAC) Regional Office’ based in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. Tessellated Reynobond Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) was used to build four, 40-foot high pillars erected on the primary façade. The facade was sculpted in such a way to generate varied effects during day and night.
  • Sustainable Design Winner boasts ‘Student Center at Monterrey Technical University’ located in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. The entry plaza was outlined with Reynobond ACM panels. Reynobond ACM has increased concentration of recycled content, promoting projects focused on LEED green building principles.

Selection was done based on the innovative use of metal, project’s overall appearance, and the metal’s characteristics to accomplish the project objectives. The projects use metal as the primary material.

The FECHAC Regional Office was designed and crafted by architectural firm Grupo ARKHOS of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico. It achieved top honors.
