The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, together with The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, announce this year’s award selection for Europe 40 under 40® for 2011. Europe 40 Under 40 recognizes the best emerging European design talent in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, and industrial design and their exceptional leadership contributions and achievements early in their professional careers.

Thirty-nine architects and landscape architects and one industrial designer were selected by a jury of architecture and design practitioners that convened in Seattle, Washington. The Jury for Awards was held at the Seattle office of The American Institute of Architects and included the following architects and industrial design leaders: John Barratt, President/CEO, Teague; Alan Maskin, Principal, Olson Kundig Architects; and Rafael Vignoly, Design Principal, LMN Architects. The winning 2011 Europe 40 Under 40 will form an exhibition during the XIII BA11- International Biennial of Architecture in Buenos Aires at Centro Cultural Recoleta (Junin 1930 C.P. 1113) opening October 8 and continuing through October 30, 2011. Plans are being formulated to travel the exhibition inside Europe in 2012. This year’s program drew submissions from young architects and designers from all European Union (EU) countries, including accession countries and Switzerland. Presented annually, the program is open to all young architects, landscape architects, urban planners, industrial designers, graphic designers, and fashion and textile designers who are under the age of 40 who are working independently or in a firm or on a specific project where they are the lead designer.

Geographically, this year’s Laureates for the 2011 “Europe 40 Under 40” arrive from across 16 European nations: Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Turkey, Sweden, Spain – the best of the young best of Europe. “Some of Europe’s most exceptional design talent was selected this year,” states Christian K. Narkiewicz-Laine, Museum President, The Chicago Athenaeum. “These young practitioners, currently designing and building some of the most provocative work today, promise to be riding the crest of the future in Europe.” “The Europe 40 Under 40 program was initiated by the European and American institutions,” states Kieran Conlon, Director/COO, The European Center, “as an annual program to spotlight and identify the next generation of architects and designers who will impact future living and working environments, cities, and rural areas throughout Europe. “This year’s range and quality of work was most substantial—from skyscrapers to art exhibitions,” continues Mr. Conlon. “New corporate architecture, institutional projects, religious buildings, civic and political structures, planning projects, urban renewal, restoration/renovation, residential architecture for single family and multi-family dwellings, stores, residential or commercial interiors, sports and transportation centers, institutions, parks, monuments, and public environments. It was difficult to narrow down the number of submissions to just 40.”
