The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is causing devastating social, economic and political crises in countries around the world. We are all now entering completely unknown territory, and there is no way to predict when it will end. a+u produces our magazine with the kind and generous cooperation of many architects from around the world, and we most fervently hope and pray that the world’s architects will overcome the challenges we all currently face.

architecture of hope

The a+u May 2020 issue features the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award (EU Mies Award). Its organizer, the Fundació Mies van der Rohe was founded in 1983 during the reconstruction of the Barcelona Pavilion (1929).

Ivan Blasi “The Barcelona Pavilion is a complete lesson in architecture: it is palimpsest, in that its logic grows naturally out of the traces of what went before; it is paradigm, in that its rhetoric broke with established conventions to become emblematic of modernity; and iconoclastic, in that it refutes redundant (in this case the overload of modernist “moralism”), so restoring to architecture its innermost simple-minded logic: a confrontation between itself and activity in general. Its iconographic rhetoric is recognised by our experience, where it is automatically transformed and redeemed: we recognise it as a great work of art and a paradigm of beauty.”1 The reconstruction of the Pavilion between 1983 and 19862 meant not only the actualization of its physical space, but also the creation of an international platform for the…

Jury Members Kenneth Frampton, Chair Ricardo Bofill François Burkhardt Vittorio Gregotti Hans Hollein Ignasi de Solà-Morales, Secretary Lluís Hortet, Director Diane Gray, Coordinator Mies van der Rohe Pavilion Award for European Architecture 1990. Act of the Jury In the name of both the EEC and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe, the jury for the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion Award for European Architecture 1990 has unanimously decided to award this year’s prize to the Third London Airport (a+u 91:10), completed at Stansted, U.K. to the designs of Norman Foster and Foster Associates. Having been synonymous with the spirit of an enlightened modernity expressed in terms of a rational and elegant architecture, airports have evolved over the last quarter of a century into relatively efficient, but often unnecessarily labyrinthine complexes where it is difficult to find the main entrance as it…
