 Wiel Arets, Dean of the College of Architecture at Illinois Institute of Technology and Dirk Denison, Director of the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize, have announced the inaugural MCHAP shortlist – 36 “Outstanding Projects” selected from the 225 nominees.

“The rich diversity of these built works is a testament to the creative energy at work in the Americas today,” said Arets. “When viewed alongside the innovative work by the MCHAP.emerge finalists and winner, Poli House by Mauricio Pezo and Sofia von Ellrichshausen which we honored in May, we see the evolution of a distinctly American conversation about creating livable space.”

From MCHAP. In April, 226 works from throughout the Americas were chosen as nominees by 70 professionally diverse, international ambassadors­. The 36 MCHAP Outstanding Projects were chosen from among the nominees by the inaugural MCHAP Jury.

The winner of MCHAP, chosen from the list of 36 shortlisted projects, will be announced on July 9th at a live-streamed public event in Santiago, Chile. The authors of the MCHAP recipient and shortlist will then be celebrated at a conference held at Crown Hall on October 22, 2014 where the jury will engage in a direct dialogue about the works as part of a continuing exploration of how architecture can improve the lives of the people who inhabit these innovative built works.
