383 projects nominated for the 2019 Mies van der Rohe Award

The European Commission and the Mies van der Rohe Foundation has announced the list of nominated projects for the 2019 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture, Mies van der Rohe Award

383 works from 238 cities in 38 countries have been nominated by 76 independent experts, the national architecture associations and the Prize Advisory Committee. 

The Mies van der Rohe Foundation reported that the most populated city is London which is also where there is the highest number of works, 12. It is followed by Vilnius with 9, Paris with 8, and Tbilisi, Tirana and Helsinki with 7 and Tallinn, Ljubljana, Lisbon, Brussels, Berlin and Barcelona with 6. Copenhagen, Budapest and Prague have 5. Nearly 50% of the places have one single work.

The Mies van der Rohe Foundation was set up in 1983 by the Barcelona City Hall with the initial purpose of reconstructing the German Pavilion, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich for the 1929 Barcelona International Exhibition.

Besides conserving and disseminating knowledge about the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, the Foundation today also fosters debate on and awareness of themes related to contemporary architecture and urban planning, as well as encouraging studies on the work of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and on the Modern Movement. In accordance with these objectives, the Fundació organises awards, congresses, conferences, exhibitions, workshops and installations.

Outstanding among these activities is the organisation, jointly with the European Commission, of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award, one of the most prestigious of all European architecture prizes.

The jury formed by Dorte Mandrup (Chairwoman), Frank McDonald, María Langarita, Kamiel Klaasse, Ștefan Ghenciulescu, Angelika Fitz and George Arbid will shortlist 40 projects that will be announced on January 16, 2019, and the 5 finalists will be announced on February 13, 2019. 

The winners will be announced in mid-April and the EU Mies Award Open Days will take place in May to promote visits to the shortlisted and finalist works.
