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.
The prestigious award went to the French Lacaton & Vassal architectes, Frédéric Druot Architecture, and Christophe Hutin Architecture for their Grand Parc Bordeaux transformation project of 530 apartments in France, and the French Toulouse-based BAST – Bureau Architectures Sans Titre won the ‘Emerging Architecture Prize‘ for their School Refectory in Montbrun-Bocage, a small village in Haute-Garonne, France. In collaboration with Georgia Tech School of Architecture, the Mies van der Rohe Foundation in Barcelona, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the USA / Atlanta, we invite BAST in residence in Atlanta during which the team will  lead a workshop with architecture studio students and give a public talk on October 23.

The EU Mies van der Rohe Award was launched in 1988 and for over 30 years has created a network that has scanned and interpreted the construction of the European territory, composed of an emulsion of natural and cultural, vernacular and canonical, traditional and artificial elements. During the exhibition opening, Ivan Blasi, curator of Prizes and Programming at the Mies van der Rohe Foundation, will give a public lecture about the finalists and shortlisted projects of the 2019 Eu Mies Award, in the European cultural, political, and architectural contexts, from its beginnings in 1988 until now. https://miesbcn.com/prize/

All events are free and open to the public
