METALCON Announces Show's Project Photo Competition Winners

Grand Prize and Walls Category Winner: ATAS International - David Rubenstein Forum at the University of Chicago

Newton, MA — METALCON, the only global event for the application of metal in design and construction, has announced the winners of its design and construction project photo competition, held during last week's annual conference and tradeshow in Tampa.    

Architects, designers, contractors, manufacturers and owners were invited to submit high-quality photos of their best, coolest, most interesting and inspiring projects that feature metal in the interior OR exterior design in one of the following categories: Roofs; Walls; Interiors; and Ornamental/Architectural Features. The winners are:

Roofs: Rheinzink - Bezier Curve House/A-House
Walls: ATAS International - David Rubenstein Forum at the University of Chicago
Interior: Gotca Group - Museum of Tomorrow
Ornamental/Architectural Features: Gotca Group - Museum of Tomorrow
Grand Prize Winner: ATAS International - David Rubenstein Forum at the University of Chicago 

Roofs Category Winner: Rheinzink - Bezier Curve House/A-House

A panel of judges comprised of the Metal Construction Association (MCA) council chairs and other metal construction and design industry experts determined one winner in each of the four categories with one grand-prize winner. Entries were judged based on the use of metal in design and construction communicated through photographs, not photo composition.  

Top entries were displayed in the METALCON Metal in Architecture Gallery at the Tampa Convention Center. Photos selected for inclusion in the gallery were automatically entered to win, and the grand-prize winner was awarded a $1000 cash prize. 

Ornamental/Architectural Features and Interiors Category Winner: Gotca Group - Museum of Tomorrow

“We were excited to receive such a great response, enabling us to create a beautiful display on-site of projects that illustrate the beauty, durability and functionality of metal in all kinds of architecture, from fire houses and truck stops to museums,” said Judy Geller, METALCON’s Vice President of Tradeshows. “We are grateful to all of those who participated and to ATAS International for donating back the grand prize win of $1000 to Feeding Tampa Bay as part of our annual giving back program.”

METALCON 2022 takes place in Indianapolis, Indiana, October 12-14 at the Indiana Convention Center.
