Following SOS Brutalism a great new exhibition will open to the public on Thursday, August 23rd, 2018:
Europe’s best Buildings
The European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture. Mies van der Rohe Award 2017
What are the best European buildings? Following the years of a boom in museums, for the first time the prizes are being awarded to two housing developments.
Every two years the exhibition ‘Europe’s best Buildings’ puts the focus on exceptional building projects in Europe, and it has become a crowd-puller. Projects are awarded prizes whose innovative character serves as orientation, even as manifestos, for the development of contemporary architecture. This year’s prize and the exhibition feature two convincing, ground-breaking winners from the housing sector: DeFlat Kleiburg in Amsterdam by NL architects together with XVW Architectuur, as well as the Emerging Architect Award winner, Navez social housing in Brussels by MSA/V+. Of the 355 nominated projects from 36 European countries, a total of 40 projects were selected for the exhibition by a high-calibre jury. Among the 5 finalists are, inter alia, projects by Rudy Ricciotti and Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects. The exhibition is supplemented by a presentation of the 18 nominated projects with Austrian participants.
