Lecture by Vedran Mimica: Architecture in the Americas



On Sunday, February 15th 2015, at 6.30 p.m., in Oris House of Architecture, professor Vedran Mimica will hold a lecture titled Architecture in Americas 2000-2013.

MCHAP (Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize) award is the counterpart of the European Mies van der Rohe Award given for the best architectural realizations of the North and South America and founded by the IIT College in Chicago.

It will be presented to the realizations completed during a two-year period. The first award included the period from 2000 to 2013.

The international jury, presided by Kenneth Frampton, inspected more than 300 nominated buildings and around 50 nominees for the MCHAP emerge award, given for the first significant realisation.

In his lecture, Vedran Mimica, one of the founders of the Award, will present the overview of the most interesting architectural realizations built on the North and South American continents in the new millennium.

The MCHAP award is specific because it is initiated by an educational institution so the lecture will present the way a critical discussion on architecture overlaps with the educational model at one of the most prominent schools of architecture in history.  

Join us at the first lecture held in House of Architecture!
