Gare Maritime shortlisted for EU MIES AWARD
The much acclaimed and awarded project Gare Maritime (with Neutelings Riedijk Architecten) in Brussels has made it to the shortlist of the EU Mies Award.
A seven-member jury, acting on behalf of the European Commission and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe, selected 40 projects from 18 countries to compete for the prestigious award out of 532 entries.
"Many of the topics addressed are in line with the objectives of the New European Bauhaus - building a sustainable future through creativity, innovation and imagination - and focus on reuse and circularity as a key form of sustainability; inclusion through collective and participatory processes that identify new approaches to urban development and thereby contribute to the improvement of local and global policies; and the use of materials, skills and technology in connection with aesthetic and general values."
The five finalists will be announced on 16 February.
Congratulations to colleagues Jan Moens, Nadja Van Houten, Jan-Hendrik Beckx, Gretel De Smet, Kathleen Rens, Paulus Present, Stephanie Van Goethem, Gert Biebauw, Bart Van den Bossche and Martijn Vyncke for this fine piece of teamwork!
