AMAL is shortlisted for EUMies Awards – 2024

Our project Amal Amjahid – community facility along the canal in Molenbeek, Brussels Region, Belgium – is one of the 40 shortlisted projects for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Awards 2024!

With 4 works shortlisted, Belgium (11 million inhabitants) is the second in the ranking of 20 countries. Spain (47 million inhabitants) is the first with 6 works. This result makes us proud to be active in Belgium, a country where architecture is invested with the responsibility of being an activity of public interest, at the core of society. It also shows that, when Architecture, Urban Planning and Governance work together, long term city projects are possible.

We would like to thank the 7 members of the jury – Frédéric Druot, Martin Braathen, Pippo Ciorra, Tinatin Gurgenidze, Adriana Krnáčová, Sala Makumbundu, and Hrvoje Njiric – to have chosen Amal Amjahid as a highlight of today’s shared culture of architecture in Europe.

“The selected projects go beyond their façades, there is a position regarding the reason for the existence of each construction, who it should serve and the responsibility of putting it at the disposal of society. ” (Tinatin Gurgenidze)
