FROM:AD Interviews: Giovanna Carnevali / Director of Fundació Mies van der Rohe


Architect and specialist in Cultural Curatorship and Management of International Modern and Contemporary Architecture Institutions



For the past 27 years, the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award has not only recognized the most relevant buildings in the EU, but has also served as a timeline of the evolution of European Architecture.

By looking back on the thousands of projects that have been nominated over the years, one can see a new identity take shape in the EU after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and thanks to the free movement of people — and therefore creative capital – that the EU developed.

In this interview, Giovanna Carnevali, the director of the Fundació Mies van der Rohe, tells us how the award is also becoming a database of hundreds of recognized architects, a powerful network that can be used to assist EU countries by linking “institutions that do have money but they don’t know how to use it and professionals.”

“We can help public administrations give more visibility to their projects… and also organize workshops or studies on any kind of scale from the city to the building,” Carnevali said.

在過去的27年裡,歐盟當代建築獎 – 密斯凡德羅獎不僅承認了歐盟最相關的建築,而且還作為歐洲建築發展的時間表。

通過回顧多年來提名的數千個項目,人們可以看到柏林牆倒塌後歐盟的新身份正在形成,並且由於人們的自由流動 – 因此創造性的資本 – 歐盟制定了。

在這次訪談中,FundacióMiesvan der Rohe的主任Giovanna Carnevali告訴我們該獎項如何成為數百名公認的建築師的數據庫,這個強大的網絡可以通過鏈接“有關的機構來幫助歐盟國家有錢,但他們不知道如何使用它和專業人士。“
