The “EUROPE 40 UNDER 40®” is an annual program initiated by The European Centre to spotlight and distinguish the next generation of architects and designers who will impact future living and working environments, cities, and rural areas. It is an annual celebration of innovation and creativity.
The program is open to all young architects, landscape architects, urban planners, and industrial designers currently under the age of 40, working independently, in a firm, or on a specific project as the lead designers.


All winning projects will be featured in the exhibition titled “40 Young European Architects with New Visions” that will take place in November 2021 in Athens, Greece, at the EUROPEAN CENTRE (74 Mitropoleos Str.). Both the dates and the duration of the exhibition will be announced shortly.
