The winner of the 2024 EUmies Award for Architecture is the Study Pavilion on the campus of the Technical University at Braunschweig, Germany, designed by Gustav Düsing and Max Hacke, who both have studios in Berlin. The duo, who both founded their studios in 2015, are the youngest team to win the award, which will be presented to them on 14 May at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona, along with a €60,000 cheque.

The pair beat a strong field of contenders from all over Europe to win. They included The Hage by Brendeland and Kristoffersen, a mystical garden on the outskirts of Lund, Sweden; a pedagogy challenging vertical school, Colegio Reggio in Madrid, Spain, by Andres Jaque/Office for Political Innovation; PLATO modern art gallery in Ostrava, Czech Republic, by KWK Promes; the renovation and extension of the Convent of Saint François in Sante-Lucie-de-Tallano, Corsica by Amelia Tavella; and Branco del Rio's Square & Tourist Office in Piódão, Portugal.

The judges stated that finalists showed how contemporary architecture addresses ‘sustainability, social equity, technological advancement, health and wellbeing, cultural preservation, resilience and adaptation, economic viability and globalisation.’ Both the EUmies Award and its associated Award for Emerging Architecture were whittled down from an initial Europe-wide longlist of 362 works. The 2022 Award, won by Grafton Architects for Kingston Townhouse, was the final time UK projects could be considered for the EU-wide award.
