Butler Gallery Nominated for Mies van der Rohe Award 2022


The Butler Gallery in Kilkenny is among the nominations announced today for the 2022 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award.

Initiated in 1987, the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award has been organised by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe and the European Commission since 2001. The Prize is awarded biennially to works completed within the previous two years and exceptionally, this time, 2,5 years. The principal objectives are to achieve a thorough understanding of the transformation of Europe’s built environment; to recognize and commend excellence and innovation in the field of architecture; and to draw attention to the important contribution of European professionals in the development of new ideas with the undeniable support of clients and the involvement of those who will become the users of these places.

The nomination of the Butler Gallery follows the shortlisting of the Medieval Mile Museum, across the river in Kilkenny, for the 2019 awards.
