EU Mies Award 2017 Winners Announced

DeFlat Kleiburg in Amsterdam by NL architects and XVW architectuur is the winner of this year's award. The winning project is a 500 apartment- building in Amsterdam that was rescued from demolition by being turned into a Klusflat - meaning that the inhabitants renovate their apartments by themselves. This marks the first time that the main Award was given to a project of renovation of an existing building and the jury stated it challenges the current solutions to housing crises in European cities, where building a-new is the only strategy.

The 2017 Emerging Architect Prize has been awarded to the Brussels studio MSA/V+ for the work NAVEZ - a 5 social units at the northern entrance of Brussels.

The two awarded projects have been chosen from a list of 355 works from 36 European countries, while the five finalists, first presented to the public in MAO at Future Architecture Matchmaking Conference 2017 were selected and visited by the Jury: Rivesaltes Memorial Museum, Katyn Museum in Warsaw, DeFlat Kleiburg in Amsterdam, Kannikegården in Ribe and Ely Court in London.

The award ceremony will take place on 26 May at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona.
