EU Mies Award 2022 nominees together with the retrospective presentation of Serbian selection since 2009
Curator: Ivan Blasi, FundacióMies van der Rohe, Barcelona
The European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award is granted every two years to acknowledge and reward quality architectural production in Europe.
In this way, the Award draws attention to the major contribution by European professionals to the development of new ideas and technologies. At the same time, it offers both individuals and public institutions an opportunity to reach a clearer understanding of the cultural role of architecture in the construction of our cities. Furthermore, the Award sets out to foster architecture in two significant ways: by stimulating greater circulation of professional architects throughout the entire European Union in response to transnational commissions and by supporting young architects as they set off on their careers.
Candidates for the Award are put forward by a broad group of independent experts from all over Europe, as well as from the architects’ associations.
At each two-yearly edition, the jury selects two winners: one that receives the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture in recognition of its conceptual, technical and constructional qualities, and the other that receives the Emerging Architect prize. All the nominated works are included in both the Award catalogue and exhibition.
The five Architecture 2022 finalist works are: 85 Social Housing Units, Cornellà de Llobregat, by peris+toral.arquitectes; Frizz23, Berlin, by Deadline (Britta Jürgens + Matthew Griffin); the Railway Farm, Paris, by Grand Huit and Melanie DrevetPaysagiste; Town House – Kingston University, London, by Grafton Architects; Z33 House for Contemporary Art, Design and Architecture, Hasselt, by Francesca Torzo.
