Exhibition: The City and the World 2019 Tell a friend
Founded in 2005, The International Architecture Awards®, organized by The Chicago Athenaeum International Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, is the oldest, annual public celebration of global architecture that sees practices around the world compete for the title of Global Building of the Year.
The International Architecture Awards® are the only non-commercial, global, public awards program given jointly by two not-for-profit museums in the United States and Europe dedicated to public education concerning architecture and industrial design.
The Awards are regarded internationally as a mark of excellence, recognizing the best global architecture practices, along with the corporate clients, developers, state and local governments, institutions, and general contractors that designed them.

EUROPEAN PRIZE FOR ARCHITECTURE 2019
One of the world’s leading 21st-Century architecture offices, the Copenhagen-based Henning Larsen Architects has been selected as this year’s Laureate of The European Prize for Architecture for the firm’s unique design approach that is based on human scale, paying strong attention to sustainability, livability, and ultimately social responsibility, while producing exemplarily strong and forceful buildings that ultimately shape the life of tomorrow with fortitude and great erudition.
Each year, The European Prize for Architecture is awarded jointly by The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design to architects who have made a commitment to forward the principles of European humanism and the art of architecture.
The exhibition of “Henning Larsen Architects” will be jointly hosted at The European Centre Athens (1st floor) along with the architectural exhibition "The City and the World".
