We are happy to announce that Elias & Yousef were selected as one the 40 under 40 european architects !
The stories of two of the projects submitted are summarized in the comics below.
The “Europe 40 Under 40” program was initiated by The European Center as an bi-annual program to spotlight and identify the next generation of architects and designers who will impact future living and working environments, cities, and rural areas. Presented bi-annually, the program is open to all young architects, landscape architects, urban planners, industrial designers, graphic designers, and fashion and textile designers who are under the age of 40 who are working independently or in a firm or on a specific project where they are the lead designer.
In 2013, hundreds of architecture and industrial design submissions for the 2014 program were received by The European Centre from across Europe.
“The jury selection and process was extremely difficult,” states Ioannis Karlias, Museum Vice President, The Chicago Athenaeum. “The jury was presented with hundreds of excellent projects and designs from skyscrapers and large —scale urban planning projects to the highest quality industrial designs for commercial and consumer use. It was difficult to narrow the number down to just 40.“
