Shortlist announced for the 2015 EU prize for contemporary architecture

The European Commission and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe have announced the 40 shortlisted works for the 2015 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award, one of the most prestigious awards in international architecture.

In total, 420 works were entered for the award and a panel of judges drew up the final shortlist of 40, including a mix of cultural, education, mixed use, religious, urban, commercial, hotels and residential projects.

Five finalists, who will be announced at the end of February, will present their projects to the judges on 7 May at an open event in Barcelona. The judges will decide on the overall winner of the prize, as well as the Emerging Architect Prize at a celebration which will take place at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona on 8 May.

The exhibition with the original 420 nominees can be visited at the Barcelona School of Architecture until 19 March.

A touring exhibition, discussions and lectures will also be presented in different European and international cities between 2015 and 2016.
