Ivan Blasi - European Stories: European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture - Mies Van Der Rohe Award
From Katie Gentilello
Contemporary architecture must assume this ambiguity, project it towards the future and offset the natural wear to which forms are subject by means of a symmetrical process of innovation. The nearly 4.000 works of the archive, created since the inception of the EU Mies Award, contribute a new inflection or added value to the European territory and the results of the 2019 cycle highlight this attitude.
The lecture will present the organization of this network of people, institutions and companies and the works chosen by a prestigious jury formed by architects, curators, journalists and clients and it will be complemented with the exhibition in the Stubbins Gallery.
