Rietveld Award 2011 for Creative Valley Utrecht

For the first time an office building wins the Rietveld Architecture Award. Although the award is a local initiative (Utrecht city, home of Rietveld) it’s looked upon as a prestigious price.

The Award will be issued November 27 to Casper Schuuring (Gent & Monk Architects), architect of Creative Valley. The building was initiated by Laurens van Doorn (NIC real estate).

The jury for the Rietveld Award 2011 consists of Christine de Ruijter (AWG Architects), Frits van Dongen (Architecten Cie), Indira van ’t Klooster (Architectuur Lokaal) and Donald Lambert (Urbis Stadsontwerp).

The jury about Creative Valley: “It’s a fantastic place to work. The building stimulates the sharing of facilities, interaction, collaboration and informal contacts.”
