Innovative and of exceptional high level. These were the words used by the jury to describe the way in which the light plays in Museum Voorlinden. The jury itself could not think of a better way to show art. For this reason, Museum Voorlinden was nominated winner of the Dutch Daylight Award 2018 in the category >1000 m2.
Boskalis and the Rotterdam bureaus Kraaijvanger Architects and Maxwan A + U have won the Design + Construct tender for a new station square and underground bicycle parking in Zwolle. On Wednesday morning 3 October, the collaborating parties unveiled the design.
TU Delft recently opened a new building providing it’s students with sports, relaxation and culture all under one roof. The entrance of the building represents the mission behind the design: Xplore yourself, Xpand your playground. Students and employees are being challenged to broaden their horizon and excel at social innovations. Services had to be extended because of the increase in students. Tim van der Hagen, chairman of the colleague board opened the building just before the start of a new academic year.
The city of Ghent revealed the design for the City Office of Ghent. Kraaijvanger Architects together with SAR architects are to design the project. “Their project was selected thanks to their thoughtful and clear urban design and architectural choices, for the strong vision on sustainability, mobility and the new way of working”, says Martine De Regge, SCHEPEN of Facility Management of the City of Ghent. The municipal library and the administrative center will be incorporated in one building.
Dirk Jan Postel will lecture during ARCHITECT @ WORK about his search for the ultimate daylight museum. His fascination for the working of light and how light can contribute to functionality and to a special experience of building, interior and art is still leading in his designs. His special interest in light and the desire for a perfect illumination sometimes leads through specific material studies to tailor-made solutions such as 'light roofs' that are created in close cooperation with clients, consultants and manufacturers. Personal vision and a practical research method take various designs along the way to the ultimate daylight museum.
Museum Voorlinden was nominated for the Dutch Daylight Award 2018. The jury chose Voorlinden because of the daylight quality generated by the building.
