Mies van der Rohe Award nomination
We have been excited about the idea of mixing a supermarket, a sports hall and apartments for our project Sundbyøster Hall II ever since we came up with this “3 in 1" concept.
The jury of The Mies Award agrees and has nominated the building for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2017. Exciting!
The European Commission and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe announced today the list of 356 works competing for the 2017 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award.
“The nominated works are stimulating, innovative and have improved the existing conditions of their sites. They push boundaries and have set new standards based on strong collaborative and participatory strategies.”
Ivan Blasi, Coordinator of the Prize
As Hans Ibelings wrote “Looking at the thousands of nominated projects, it is easy to see many of them not only as commendable pieces of architecture but valuable parts of the city as well.”

“Nearly all works are constructed in an existing built environment and testify that a key challenge for contemporary architecture is the consciousness of its urban environment and a constant dialogue with cultural heritage.”
