I also like the copper, one of my favourite architectural materials. Patina's so nicely, and makes modern structures feel a little less cold in my opinion. As for the type of "copper-coloured metal" they use, it could end up a number of ways. I believe this has come up a few times in past conversation, but it may have been in the Regina thread.
