Only 10 of the 92 entries were nominated by this year’s jury. Submissions were rigorously assessed against a range of criteria, namely: durability, sublimation, sustainability, economy, innovation and social value.

The two other projects in this category are: The Blue Lake Block, Amsterdam and New Shortcuts in Rotterdam. The awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday, June 4th at 13:00 at PROVADA in Amsterdam, as part of the annual redevelopment, repurpose and transformation conference.
