Fyyri nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award 2022

September 09, 2021

We are excited and honoured to announce that the Kirkkonummi library Fyyri has been nominated for the 2022 European Union Prize of Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award.

Fyyri is already our third project to be nominated for the EU Mies Award 2022, along with Akola Manor and K-Kampus. Altogether 10 projects have been nominated from Finland.

The European Commission and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe announce today the second list of 85 works competing for the 2022 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award. These works join the previous group of nominees announced on 2 February. Altogether, 532 works completed between October 2018 and April 2021 in 41 countries.

The prize aims to promote and understand the significance of quality and reflect the complexity of architecture’s own significance in terms of technological, constructional, social, economic, cultural and aesthetic achievements.

The jury members feel the need to approach the decisions in a responsible way taking into consideration the pandemic which has changed our lives. There will be works finished before the pandemic and others during the pandemic and this might show certain differences, for example in the case of public spaces.
