This catalogue accompanies the biannual European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture - an award that seeks to acknowledge and reward quality in European architectural production.

The Award draws attention to the major contribution by European professionals to the development of new ideas and technologies and enables both individuals and public institutions to reach a clearer understanding of the cultural role of architecture in the construction of our cities.

In 2009, Snohetta's Opera House in Oslo won the prestigious prize, while the Emerging Architect Special mention was awarded to STUDIO UP/ Lea Pelivan and Toma Plejic, for Gymnasium 46'09'N/16'50'E in Koprivnica, Croatia.

This publication illustrates both winning projects, together with the other 4 finalists and the 44 projects chosen by the jury, by means of plans, photographs, explanatory texts and interviews.
