After a two-year suspension due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize has announced that 10 projects designed by emerging practices in the Americas have been shortlisted for the 2022 MCHAP.emerge.
The MCHAP.emerge acknowledges the best architectural project in the Americas by practices within its first ten years of operation: Pezo von Ellrichausen’s Poli House won the inaugural MCHAP.emerge in 2014. Two years later, Mexican office PRODUCTORA was awarded for their design for the Pavilion for the Culture Fair at the Zocalo in Mexico City. In the latest cycle held in 2018, Rozana Montiel’s Common Unity was chosen as the winner—the design of public space in a housing complex in Mexico City.
