YTAA – EU Mies Award

The Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) aims to support the talent of recently graduated Architects, Urban Planners and Landscape Architects, who will be responsible for transforming our environment in the future. YTAA has emerged from an interest in the initial stages of these students’ development and a desire to support their talent as they enter into the professional world.
The YTAA is organised by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe with the support of Creative Europe as an extension of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award. It is organised in partnership with the European Association for Architectural Education (EAAE) and the Architects’ Council of Europe (ACE-CAE); and World Architects as a founding partner; the European Cultural Centre as a partner in Venice; sponsored by Jung and Jansen; and with the support of USM.

By bringing together the most talented graduated architects and the best architecture firms and institutions, the Winners of the YTAA will have the chance to find comprehensive strategies enhancing synergies and complementarities with the firms and institutions of their interest.

Travel Exhibition

YTAA 2018 will be presented in Architecture Schools and Institutions with an exhibition designed as an easy download and print format. By showing together all the Graduation Projects participating in YTAA 2018, we have an overview of the topics that have been discussed by students and professors in European Schools, with China and South Korea as guest countries, during the last two years.

Nominees, shortlisted projects, finalist and winning proposals are presented in a way that reflects YTAA discussion and selection process, inviting visitors to know the jury criteria and draw their own conclusions.
