The Atlas is a project that was executed with passionate enthusiasm by hundreds of architects, critics, politicians, clients, and citizens, standing together to improve living conditions in Europe, having learned from success stories and transformed them in consonance with the world's evolution.
The Award Team invites you to travel through space and time across Europe through the architectural projects that, since 1988, have been nominated for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture - Mies van der Rohe Award.
Although they might not represent the totality of what has been built in Europe, they certainly highlight the excellence and quality of European architecture and, in consequence, the way we live, learn, work and enjoy life together.
