Musée d'arts de Nantes shortlisted for EU Mies Award

We are delighted that the Musée d'arts de Nantes is one of 40 projects shortlisted for the 2019 Mies van der Rohe Prize.

The European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award is granted every two years to acknowledge and reward quality architectural production in Europe. Candidates for the Award are put forward by a broad group of independent experts from all over Europe, as well as from the architects’ associations that form part of the European Council of Architects and other European national architects’ associations.

Stanton Williams Principal Director Patrick Richard said
“It is a privilege to be the only UK practice with a project shortlisted for this prestigious award. This highlights the contribution UK architects make within Europe, and how important it is that we continue to have the ability to work across the European Union.”

Five finalists will be announced on 13 February and the overall winner will be announced at an Award Ceremony on 7 May 2019 at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona.
