The Rake Visningsrom in Elgsetergate 28, Trondheim, is one of the nominated projects in this prestigious European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture. 5 students from BAS participated in this joint project together with students from NTNU and AHO, as part of the student workshop Trestykker 2011. RAKE visningsrom is an independent exhibition space focusing on art and architecture. Read more.

The BAS students Inga Eggen, Martin Hauge, Olav Vidvei, Erlend Espenæs and Katrine W. Høiem were part of the studentgroup of total 30 students that designed and constructed this showroom with materials from a nearby office building that was about to be demolished. 

The workshop was lead by Assistant Professor August Schmidt from NTNU, Faculty for architecture and fine art and a group of architecture students from NTNU.

The principal objectives of the Mies van der Rohe Prize are to recognise and commend excellence in the field of architecture and to draw attention to the important contribution of European professionals in the development of new concepts and technologies. The Prize also sets out to promote the profession by encouraging architects working throughout the entire European Union and by supporting young architects as they set off on their careers.

Bas rector Sixten Rahlff is one of the members in an substantial group of independent experts specialising in contemporary architecture that among others nominates works to be considered for the Prize.
