The competition, announced in March, was open to students of architecture, engineering, design and art from more than 800 European universities to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the European Union Contemporary Architecture Prize – Mies van der Rohe Award.  It was created with the objective of supporting talented youths, by offering them the possibility to turn one of their designs into a reality.
