Europe’s Best Buildings. The European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture

Every two years the exhibition ‘Europe’s best Buildings’ puts the focus on exceptional building projects in Europe, and it has become a crowd-puller. Projects are awarded prizes whose innovative character serves as orientation, even as manifestos, for the development of contemporary architecture. This year’s prize and the exhibition feature two convincing, ground-breaking winners from the housing sector: DeFlat Kleiburg in Amsterdam by NL architects together with XVW Architectuur, as well as the Emerging Architect Award winner, Navez social housing in Brussels by MSA/V+.
Of the 355 nominated projects from 36 European countries, a total of 40 projects were selected for the exhibition by a high-calibre jury. Among the 5 finalists are, inter alia, projects by Rudy Ricciotti and Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects. The exhibition is supplemented by a presentation of the 18 nominated projects with Austrian participants.
