The independent jury announced the winners and honourable mentions of the 40th edition of Archiprix Netherlands on Friday June 26.

The line-up of the independent jury that judged the graduation projects of Archiprix 2020 is as follows: Frans Bevers (interior architecture), Ira Koers (architecture), Mascha Onderwater (landscape architecture), Merel Pit (theory) and Jeroen Zuidgeest (urban design).

Shared first prize (in alphabetical order)
Living Monument
Sarina Bleumink
, AvB Arnhem (architecture)
The felicitously designed and magnificently presented project for repurposing a potato starch plant in Coevorden is a convincing example of how to deal with memory. It transforms the ruins of the plant into a meaningful element in the city. The design has been scrupulously elaborated in every detail and in its material expression.

Nature Is Under Your Feet
Charlotte van der Woud
e, AvB Amsterdam (landscape architecture)
Operating at a number of strategically chosen sites in London, this project literally descends to the former River Fleet now flowing unseen below the city into the Thames. At each site is a carefully designed intervention that brings the ground plane into contact with the subterranean river. Each site has its own biotope created for specific flora and fauna. This strategy deftly introduces the idea of nature beneath the city into how we perceive that city as a whole.

Permeable Borders
Felipe Chaves Gonzalez
, TU-Delft (urban design)
Permeable Borders tackles a brief that is relevant and complex in equal measure. The aim is to improve the integration of vulnerable inhabitants in Rio de Janeiro. The designer succeeds convincingly in his strategy for a development model for Rio, including a realistic and practical toolkit to heal the city. The proposal excels in its strategic planning and meta-planning.

Honourable mentions (in alphabetical order)
Paul Kuipers
, AvB Amsterdam (architecture)
A fascinating design for a home for Edward Snowdon in Amsterdam’s canal district.

A Sense of Home
Patrick Roegier
s, AvB Amsterdam (architecture)
The designer lived for a while among the homeless, drawing on his experiences to design two facilities that the homeless lack: a kitchen (Dapperkeuken) and a bedroom (Bedsteeg) in Amsterdam’s Jordaan quarter.

Suspension of partnerships in Russia Solidarity with Ukraine
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. more
