“Constructing Europe:
25 years of Architecture

_June, 2013.

Commemorating the 25th anniversary of the “European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award” is tantamount to celebrating the achievement of having reached the present day with our enthusiasm for fostering innovation and quality in architecture entirely intact. On the other hand, however, it is also calls for an exercise in retrospective meditation and a necessary reflection that will enables s to continue for a further 25 years rewarding architecture’s ability to understand the circumstances of the moment and exploit them at the service of a society in constant evolution.
