BEST DUTCH GRADUATION PROJECTS IN ARCHITECTURE, URBANISM, INTERIOR- AND LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
Archiprix is shocked by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and empathizes with all those affected by it. We decided to suspend our partnerships in the Russian Federation and Belarus until further notice, in line with the urgent appeal of our government.
We wish to express our solidarity with the people in Ukraine, and we embrace those in the academic communities in Russia who are speaking out against the invasion while courageously continuing to dedicate themselves to peace, dialogue and open cooperation.
On Saturday June 18 the independent jury announced the winners of the 42nd edition of Archiprix Netherlands. The announcement took place in Het Keilepand in Rotterdam. The line-up of the jury is as follows: Tess Broekmans (urbanism), Michou-Nanon de Bruijn (interior architecture), David Kloet (landscape architecture), Violette Schönberger (theory) and Gus Tielens (architecture).
Shared first prize (in alphabetical order)
Decolonising the City: Public Space as Cultural Resistance in Santiago de Chile, designed by Tessa Koenig Gimeno, TU-Delft (architecture)
This activist project to transform Plaza Italia in Santiago de Chile into a stage for demonstrations and rallies shows to perfection how the public realm can accommodate cultural protest. The socially relevant brief is convincingly translated into a vibrant layered design with the character of a manifesto, an architectural provocation.
Freshwater farms on saline soils / Zoetwater erven, designed by Lieke Jildou de Jong, AvB Amsterdam (landscape architecture)
The landscape architectural project offers an inspiring perspective for seed potato production in the Noord-Groningen region. It resolves all the key issues collectively and adds a supremely poetic layer to the landscape. In a process spanning several decades, this 'new farming' in a new production landscape is worked up meticulously and plausibly into a comprehensive circular project.
Earthworks, designed by Anna Zań, AvB Amsterdam (architecture)
The well-balanced, perfectly targeted combination of aesthetics, material expression, education and development strategy provides a seamless response to the challenge of transforming the former ENCI cement works at Maastricht. The project is acutely relevant to this depopulating region.
Imagining Rotterdam / Denkbeelden van Rotterdam, designed by Marinda Verschoor, AvB Rotterdam (architecture)
Inspired by the methods of Piranesi, this exceptional entry compresses a number of temporal strata into a single layer. The spatial, theoretical and historical study into the Boompjes boulevard in Rotterdam fuels the discourse on the city and is suitable for general application as a method for redeveloping existing sites.
