The Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize (MCHAP) jury has announced its list of six finalists for this year’s contest during a special event held in Medellin, Colombia. The prize honors projects completed in the Americas region between December 2018 and June 2021. Finalists were selected from a field of 39 projects that were announced in June of 2022.
“We knew going into this trip that we would be visiting projects that demonstrate the relevance of a simple idea, but one that is so crucial right now: doing more with less,” MCHAP jury member Dirk Denison said in a statement. “The finalist projects all exhibit a radical generosity, giving their communities so much with the most targeted of interventions.”
