February 2012 This year the Dutch association of architects BNA again organises the election of the "Building Of the Year", the best realised building design of one of their architect members. Ector Hoogstad Architecten is in the running with no less than three projects: "De Dirigent", a mutifunctional building with educational and sports facilities in Tilburg, the factory-turned-office building for IMd Construction Engineers and our design for the new educational building for Melanchthon Laanslootseweg, both in Rotterdam. First a jury in each of the different regional BNA departments appoints nominees and a regional winner, then a national jury picks an overall winner from all the nominations. New in this year's contest is that the public also gets a chance to vote. follow this link to view all the contending projects and to vote - preferably for one of our projects, of course!
