As usual, the MIPIM Awards go together with the main event of MIPIM Cannes to bring an overview of innovation and cutting-edge design in the world of major projects. The awards have become one of the key moments of the event par excellence in the field of real estate, and an opportunity to recognize and emphasize excellence on an international level.
The jury, chaired this year by François Trausch, Global CEO & CIO of Allianz Real Estate, selected 12 winners from about 100 candidates from all over the world, as well as a 13th winner of the “Special Jury Award,” a sort of “best of the best” assigned to the House of Music in Bucharest designed by Sou Fujimoto. The winning projects respond perfectly to the theme of MIPIM for 2022 (the 31st edition), “Driving Urban Change,” reflecting an ability to adapt to the consequences of the pandemic on how people live, work, spend leisure time and consume.
“What impressed the jury most was the diversity and creativity of the projects submitted, a hallmark of our European cities and an important factor for buildings that are developed today for tomorrow’s communities,” François Trausch explained.”
