Named after the pioneer of the 20th century modern architecture Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Prof. Dr. Özgür Dinçyürek has been nominated for the EU Prize for Contemporary Architecture Mies Van Der Rohe Award.
Launched in 1987, the award is co-funded by the EU Culture Programme and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe. By highlighting excellent architectural works that have been constructed over the last two years, the Prize draws attention to the contribution of European professionals in the development of new ideas and technologies, as well as the cultural importance of architecture in the construction of our cities
.The European Commission and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe announced the list of 420 projects competing for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2015. 27% of the proposals deal with Housing while 24% are Cultural facilities. 11% are connected to Education, 5% to Offices and the other 33% include mostly Sport, Commercial, Governmental, Transport and Urban typologies.
Candidates for the Prize are put forward by a broad group of independent experts from all over Europe; the associations that are members of the Architects' Council of Europe (ACE), as well as other national architects' associations and the institutions that form part of the Advisory Committee for the Prize.
At each biennial edition, the jury selects two works: one that receives the Prize and the other the Emerging Architect Special Mention, both in recognition of their conceptual, technical and constructional qualities. The jury also selects a set of shortlisted works to be included in the catalogue publication and travelling exhibition.
The Prize is endowed with 60,000 €, while the Special Mention consists of a cash prize of 20,000 €. The winners are also awarded a sculpture designed by Catalan artist Xavier Corberó inspired by the columns of the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion of Barcelona, symbol of the Prize and one of the 20th century's major architectural works.

As you already know, 2nd Italian Week of the EMU has already started. This year we are hosting a joint events for this week with INTBAU Cyprus, INTBAU Italy and Poletecnico di Milano. These events include a seminar and a workshop by Prof. Dr. Giuseppe Amoruso, Assistant Professor in School of Design at the Politecnico Di Milano, on 22nd October 2014, Wednesday.
1. Seminer “colour and identity issues in vernacular sites” (A01) (09:30) 2. Workshop “mapping the landscape, study of the local building code” (Yellow room) (between 11:00-16:00)
We believe that this is a great opportunity for our students to experience such a workshop to widen their perspectives. However, due to the limited quota for students, it is expected that each design studio group should select one student to take place in the workshop. The selection could be based on volunteering or on success and skill criteria, which would be defined by the studio professors. The selected names should be send to the department latest on Tuesday (21.10.2014) at 9:30. The workshop will be "mapping the landscape,study of the local building code”.
The students are expected to bring sketchbooks, black pen, pads, markers, watercolor, watercolor paper. Students who will take place in this event will get special permission from the department for not being able to participate classes on Wednesday.
Thank you very much for your cooperation...
