The winner of Emerging Architecture is the cooperative housing La Borda de Lacol in Barcelona.
This cooperative project is transgressive in its context, because although housing production is dominated by macroeconomic interests, this model is based on co-ownership, co-management of resources and shared capacities.
The model goes beyond the specific cooperative housing project. This study is managed as a cooperative in which fourteen professionals, from different disciplines, offer an active tool to promote political and urban change from within the system, i.e. an example of action based on social, ecological and economic sustainability.
The “EUmies Awards 2022” exhibition will embark on a European tour. The opening will take place in Cologne on 10 June with Baukultur Nordrhein-Westfalen. In addition to a venue in BOZAR, Brussels, from 21 July, and another venue at the Architekturzentrum Wien in Vienna in October.
