Fresh facts: De beste gebouwen van jonge architecten in Nederland

Dutch architecture currently stands at the center of worldwide attention. Firms like OMA, MVRDV, UN Studio, Neutelings Riedijk, and Claus and Kaan are now firmly ensconced in the international architecture scene, their lectures, exhibitions, and publications constantly raising the banner of Dutch design cultures higher and higher. While architects in other countries often have to wait years to admire, and be admired for, their first built work, their young Dutch colleagues are given opportunity after opportunity to turn their designs into buildings. The Netherlands Architecture Institute saw this as an inducement to inaugurate a new architecture award, to be awarded every two years to the best structure built by a young Dutch architectural firm. On the shortlist for this first award are buildings by VMX Architecten, NL Architecten, Korteknie Stuhlmacher Architecten, MVRDV, and Rena van Zuuk Architecten. Their projects were presented at the Dutch pavillion during the 2002 Venice Biennale.
