In April 2019 an international jury under the presidency of Dorte Mandrup selected a winner among the 5 finalists for the EU Mies Award 2019 and a winner for the Emerging Architect Prize out of the 40 previously shortlisted works.
From May onwards, a travelling exhibition is showing models, texts, videos, sketches and drawings of the 40 shortlisted works and a summary of all 383 nominees. This layout disseminates the work of European architects and creates important discussions and synergies on ways of designing, building and using places, cities and territories.
