EU Mies Award Day

EU Mies Award Day kicks off with a free day of debates and lectures, the EUMiesAward 207 Exhibition and its catalogue presentation in the Palau de Victòria Eugènia.
EU Mies Award Day continues in the evening with the delivery of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2017 in the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion and ends with the celebrations organised by the COAC on the esplanade of the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc.
The architectural containers of the exhibition ‘Made in Europe’ will serve as ‘props’ for the festivities. These containers will have been set up in the 10 districts of Barcelona and in Plaça Europa in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat.
