Mies van der Rohe’s refurbished Neue Nationalgalerie, a project led by David Chipperfield Architects Berlin between 2012 and 2021, has been shortlisted for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2022. The project follows the idea of the ‘invisible architect’ where any updates or modifications were subservient to Mies’ original vision.

The jury will announce the five finalists on 16 February and the winner will be made public in April, followed by an award ceremony in May at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona.

The European Commission and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe announce the EU Mies Award biennially and it is open to projects completed within the previous two years and exceptionally, this time, 2.5 years. In total 532 works were nominated for the 2022 award with 40 shortlisted.
