“Europe is not a continent, it is a cultural entity”1


The EUPavilion project is part of the broader debate about Europe as a cultural entity and not just as a defined geographic area or a political and economic organisation.

The construction of such an entity is only possible through the recognition and representation of a set of shared values and a common political agenda.

Reflecting on the relationship between the EU institutions and architecture is a fundamental step in the quest for such values. Only a critical approach to such matters can result in a project of significant collective value.

In fact, the so called “Iconographic deficit”2 of the EU is partly due to the lack of a clear and bold project that engages with space, architecture and monuments.

The EUPavilion project aims to raise awareness of the public on these issues, by means of design.
