The 40 works shortlisted for the EUmies Awards 2024 were announced two weeks ago, and the announcement of the finalists — five for the Architecture award, two for the Emerging Architecture award — will come in another two weeks. So now is a good time to take a look at the process behind the selection of the winners of the 2022 awards. The 30-minute film BUILT SKIN. EUmies Awards 2022, recently uploaded to YouTube by the EUmies Awards, does just that: highlighting the finalists through commentary by the architects, clients and users, and the members of the jury. The winners of the previous awards cycle were celebrated at a ceremony in Barclelona in May 2002 and, likewise, the winners of the EUmies Awards 2024 will be announced at a ceremony at the Barcelona Pavilion in May.

As a reminder, the 2022 Architecture Winner was Town House – Kingston University by Grafton Architects, while Lacol's La Borda cooperative housing was the 2022 Emerging Architecture Winner. World-Architects was a Strategic Partner of the 2022 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award, and in that role we documented the ceremony and exhibition, visited La Borda, and interviewed Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara of Grafton Architects.
