Share post:

The Piódão Tourist Office is one of the seven finalist projects for the Mies van der Rohe architecture prize, the organization announced today, in charge of the foundation that gives it its name and the European Commission.

João Branco and Paula del Río’s project for the tourist office in the municipality of Arganil, in the district of Coimbra, is one of two finalists in the Emerging category.

The Mies van der Rohe Prize is named after the German-born architect who headed the Bauhaus in the early 1930s. After Hiltler’s Nazi forces came to power in 1933, he took refuge in the United States, where he obtained US citizenship and was at the origin of the so-called Second Chicago School and today’s Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT).
