European Steel Design Awards 2021


Steel is recognized for its high potential in terms of strength, durability, design flexibility, adaptability, recyclability and reusability. Today’s steel structures allow the best adaptation to modern life and renovation of historical elements of our built environment,   being in cities or countryside. Steel is also the perfect material for reaching a circular economy while leaving the necessary room for creativity in design.

The European Steel Design Awards are given by the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) every two years to encourage the creative and outstanding use of steel in architecture. The awards are dedicated to the owners, the architects, the engineers, the general contractors and the steelwork contractors.

ECCS is the European Association of Steelwork Contractors, the unique platform gathering steel producers, contractors, researchers and academics. ECCS is a federation of 18 national associations of steelwork contractors.
