BNA Best Building of the Year is THE Dutch architecture prize that has been awarded annually - since 2006 - by the Royal Institute of Dutch Architects (BNA). The prize is for buildings that offer added value to clients, users and society.
Out of all 103 submissions the jury made a selection of ten projects, which they believe not only stand out in terms of aesthetics and quality, but also make the added value of architecture for people and society visible.
The winner of the jury prize will be announced on 22 October. In addition, a favorite of the public will be awarded. What will be your favorite? Which project offers the most added value for people and society?
Projects in the category Liveability & social cohesion category are Fenix 1in Rotterdam, Forum Groningen and Domusdela in Eindhoven. In the Private living experience category you will find the Tiny Holiday Home on the Vinkeveense Plassen and the House with tail in Soesterberg. Stimulating environments are the expansion of the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and the Werkspoorfabriek in Utrecht, which has been converted into a multi-company building. The Park Pavilion Hoge Veluwe, the Naturalis museum in Leiden and the Tij bird observatory near Stellendam represent the category Identity & Icon Value.
