The Cyprus Association of Architects, as part of its activities to showcase, promote and disseminate ideas of contemporary architectural thought, is currently hosting one of the most important exhibitions in European space, the Mies van der Rohe Foundation exhibition entitled What’s Old What’s New. The main objective of this exhibition is to spread knowledge of the Contemporary European Architecture Awards and it will only travel to some EU countries, including Cyprus.
The Mies van der Rohe Contemporary Architecture Award, awarded every two years to projects that have been completed over the past two years, highlights excellence, creativity and innovation in European architecture. It showcases the crucial contribution of European Architects to the creation of new ideas, and the development of new technologies in modern urban development. The award is co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe program and Mies van der Rohe is the most important award in European architecture.
Architecture is at the heart of Europe’s vibrant cultural and creative sectors, and the hosting of this exhibition in Cyprus is characterised by the Cyprus Architects Association as a cultural event that will bring architects, other specialties and the general public in touch with concepts in architectural design and, on the other hand, information, discussing the building of Europe in modern architecture.
The What’s Old What’s New exhibition presents the 383 candidate projects submitted to the 2019 European Architecture Competition, including distinguished and award-winning projects, thematically organised, featuring models and audiovisual content.
