We are very pleased to announce that Markella Menikou, Head of the Department of Architecture, has been selected to represent Cyprus at the European Mies van der Rohe Award 2021.with her project “Concrete House @ Paniotis”.

The Mies van der Rohe Award is the most prestigious European Architecture Prize and it is awarded biannually to acknowledge and reward quality architectural production in Europe.

It highlights the achievements of European architects in the development of new concepts and technologies and provides citizens as well as public institutions with the opportunity to reach a better understanding of the importance of architecture in the construction of sustainable cities and communities where the essential relationship between the quality of life and the quality of the environment is a key priority.

This is undoubtedly a significant honour for Markella, the Department of Architecture and the University of Nicosia!
