The nominees for the 2017 Amsterdam Architecture Prize, the ‘Golden A.A.P.’, reveal a city in transition. The projects showcase the use of innovative construction methods, new forms of project development and provide a response to Amsterdam’s population growth. We have identified three distinct trends: New Project Development, Growing Metropolis, and Innovation & Circularity.
On April 13th, the Gouden A.A.P. is awarded to the architect and the client of the winning project. Next to a jury of professionals, also a public jury of citizens of Amsterdam award a price. This takes place during a festive evening in the former Bijlmerbajes, an evening that everbody is welcome to attend. Tickets are available online, including a special group ticket for architecture firms.
This year, the jury consists of Tracy Metz (journalist/author), Jeroen van Schooten (architect-director Team V Architectuur) and Carola Hein (professor architecture and urbanism TU Delft). The public jury consists of local residents Ingrid van de Grint, Jan Versteeg and Jasper Nagtzaam.
The Gouden A.A.P. 2017 is made possible by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, NewTech, Ahrend, Bolidt and Solits.
