During the week previous to the Award Ceremony, the buildings of the EU Mies Award Winner (Kleiburg, Amsterdam), the Emerging Architect Winner (Navez), the 4 Finalist works (Rivesaltes Memorial Museum, Katyn Museum in Warsaw, Kannikegarden in Ribe and Ely Court in London) will organize events to explain the architecture of these places in situ.

In addition to the works nominated for the 2017 edition, the cities of Berlin, London, Dublin, Paris and Barcelona have included all the works nominated in every edition.
