The European Commission and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe announced today the list of works competing for the 2017 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award.
Out of 356 projects, 28 are built in Spain and 3 are built by Spanish studios in Montpellier and Torun.
Housing and buildings for Cultural programmes continue being the most representative works. They are followed by education buildings which have increased their presence significantly. The number of mixed used works connected to cultural and social programmes—such as a library with an auditorium or a city hall with a civic centre—form the fourth most important group of works.
The Jury members will shortlist 40 projects and select the 5 finalist works which they will visit in April. The process will culminate with the Award Ceremony on May 26 at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona.
