The European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award is a biennial award recognising excellence in European architecture in conceptual, social, cultural, technical and constructive terms.

Lafayette Anticipations has been selected on the 2019 shortlist for the prize. Eckersley O’Callaghan provided structural and facade engineering services for the contemporary art foundation, which is housed in a refurbished 19th century industrial building in Paris.

The building includes a central steel-framed ‘exhibition tower’ 18 metres tall, with a unique system of moveable floors. It opened to the public in March 2018 and last year received the prestigious Equerre d’argent – Prix special du Jury.
