A book series about New Amsterdam Courthouse

The demolition works and construction of the New Amsterdam Courthouse started in January 2017. Photographer Dominique Panhuysen is reporting from the site to realise a dedicated book series.

From behind the construction fences and up in the tower cranes, she captures the work of demolishers and builders on the building site from a very personal perspective. Every building phase will result in a photo section. When the New Amsterdam Courthouse opens its doors, the series will be complete.

Supreme Court awarded with Silver Medal

The Supreme Court of the Netherlands has been awarded with the International Prize for Sustainable Architecture Fassa Bortolo 2017 Silver Medal.

The prize is promoted by Fassa Bortolo and the Department of Architecture of the University of Ferrara in order to widely promote and publicize environmentally sustainable architectural projects designed for human needs.

An excerpt from the jury report states: “The use of efficient technological and engineering solutions, the design of flexible spaces able to adapt to changing requirements of use over time, as well as the choice of materials characterised by high durability, all combine to allow the building to respond effectively to the performance requirements defined during the meta-design phase.”
