Three British projects shortlisted for Europe’s biggest architectural prize

The six-storey mixed-use university building in southwest London has been nominated alongside Carmody Groarke’s Hill House Box in Helensburgh and SelgasCano’s Second Home offices in Holland Park on the 40-person shortlist for the L European Union for Contemporary Architecture 2022.

Also known as the Mies van der Rohe Prize and usually biennial, it is widely recognized as the highest honor in European architecture. It was last won in 2019 before the Covid pandemic by Lacaton & Vassal for its innovative renovation of three 1960s slab blocks in Bordeaux.

The 40 pre-selected works are distributed in 18 different European countries. Austria, France and Spain have the most applicants with five projects each.

Five finalists will be announced on February 16 and the winner announced in May at the Mies van der Rohe pavilion in Barcelona.
