Villa Vonk shortlisted for Rotterdam Architecture Prize
October 21, 2014
VenhoevenCS is proud to announce that Villa Vonk has been shortlisted for the Rotterdam Architecture Prize!
In September 2014 professionals and the public could send in projects for the Rotterdam Architecture Prize. This has lead to a very nice overview of schools, office buildings, bridges, a parc, a square, a station, commercial buildings and a lot more. The jury has now selected a shortlist. They judged architectural quality of the projects and the significance they have on their neighbourhood and the city.
Other aspects that were taken into account:
– The type of projec;, to give a good view on the variety of new buildings in Rotterdam
– The size of the project; to give attention to both small, medium and large projects
– The geographical spread; because the jury wants to give attention to quality of the built environment in every part of Rotterdam
The result is a splendid shortlist of 25 projects. Soon documentation on each project – with drawings, photos, text etc. – will be available on the website of Rotterdam Architecture Prize. The jury will start selecting mid October and the public can vote on their favourite project in November.
The award show of the jury prize and the public prize will take place on Wednesday 17 December in the city hall of Rotterdam.
