The ‘Living Places’ Simon Architecture Prize is a Simon initiative that has had the support and advice of the Fundació Mies van der Rohe.

The goal of this prize is to highlight those architecture projects (including indoors, public spaces and landscaping) whose excellence enhances the ability of the spaces to promote the comfort of its inhabitants. Architectures that turn into higher quality spaces for people in their day-to-day lives: to work, to learn, to wait, to play… Architectures to live in!


The jury for this edition includes architect and sustainable habitat researcher Anupama Kundoo; artist and filmmaker Louise Lemoine (Paris-Rome); architect Victor Jaime (Productora), one of the winners from the previous edition of Living Places with the project for the Centro Cultural Teopanzolco; Ana Luisa Soares, critic and speaker from the emerging Portuguese architecture studio Fala Atelier; Croatian lighting designer Dean Skira, who defends that “light is not important for architecture, but for people who live in it”, and finally Salvi Plaja, Simon Design Director.
