The European Commission and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe have announced the list of 383 works competing for the 2019 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award.
The 383 works draw the present picture of contemporary architecture in Europe. After the challenges of Housing and Heritage in Europe highlighted by the 2017 Jury and Winners and the exciting debates that have taken place during these two years, the new cycle of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award will reflect on the next challenges of architecture, which architects, clients, policymakers, and other professionals are faced with.
383 works from 238 cities in 38 countries have been nominated by 76 independent experts, the national architecture associations and the Prize Advisory Committee.
Three new countries were invited to participate in the Prize, after joining the EC Creative Europe programme: Armenia, Kosovo, and Tunisia.

These two groups are followed by collective and single housing and education facilities, which represent 10% each.
