The Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize Announces MCHAP Outstanding Projects

According to the jury, the commonality among the selected built works was their respect for the context, climate, and environment. They employed regional means and methods to build in order to connect meaningfully to the local communities, celebrate cultural values, and address significant problems. The selected entries demonstrated an understanding of the ways in which architecture can impact positively the population and benefit people in their living, working, and learning environments.

The outstanding projects exhibited immense diversity across programs, scales and problems addressed; such
solutions manifest across a variety of budgets, scales, and sizes. Regardless of their diversity in approach, every project, within its scope, explores improving the quality of architecture and enhancing life. All projects also show an immense sensitivity in responding to their physical and cultural context. - Sandra Barclay, MCHAP 2022 Jury Chair
