mies van der rohe award 2009

the shortlist for the mies van der rohe award 2009 [european union prize for contemporary architecture] was announced in the second week of february!
i was sinking in the final rush for a competition deadline and didn't have time to update the blog!
Here are the finalists:
the Norwegian Opera & Ballet by Snøhetta

the Multimodal Centre – Nice Tramway by Atelier Marc Barani

the Library, Senior Citizens’ Centre and City Block Core Zone in Barcelona by RCR Aranda Pigem Vilalta Arquitectes

the University Luigi Bocconi by Grafton Architects

the Zenith Music Hall in Strasbourg by Massimiliano Fuksas Architecture

i am very undecided between fukas and snøhetta...which one do you like?
