The Illinois Institute of Technology College of Architecture has selected Barclay & Crousse Architecture’s Edificio E as the winner of the biennial Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize (MCHAP). The accolade, which recognizes architectural excellence in the Americas, will award the project’s designers Sandra Barclay and Jean Pierre Crousse $50,000 in funding towards the development of a publication that touches on the theme of “rethinking the metropolis.” Barclay and Crousse will also be given the MCHAP Chair at the college.
“Mies’s Crown Hall represents a fundamental enrichment in the understanding of how architects enclose and define space,” said MCHAP Director Dirk Denison. “I believe Edificio E will become a similar point of reference, but here it is the space between that enriches the collective architectural language.”
