Chicago: When you can’t check out the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture, let (a version of) it come to you.
An exhibition covering this year’s Mies van der Rohe Award winner is at the Instituto Cervantes downtown through November 11.
This award is an initiative of the European Commission organized by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe and honors the work of European architects who develop new concepts and technologies.
The winner, Neues Museum, was designed by David Chipperfield Architects in collaboration with Julian Harrap. Ramon Bosch and Bet Capdeferro recieved the Emerging Architect Special Mention for Casa Collage in Girona, Spain.
The winners received a sculpture that evokes Mies’ Barcelona Pavilion in addition to cash prizes.
