Edge Technologies have been crowned the overall winner of the 2020 Future Project Awards for their Valley project in Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Having also picked up the award in the Commercial Mixed Use category for their Valley project in Amsterdam, Edge Technologies have been declared the overall winners of the 2020 Future Project Awards. The design of the building is rooted in an ambition to transform the South Axis area, which over the last 20 years has become the main international business centre of Amsterdam. Contrasting the corporate history of the area with a residential future, the project hopes to develop a more diverse urban quarter for Zuidas.
This year’s judges included Christina Seilern of Studio Seilern Architects; Roger Zoglovitch, creative director of Solidspacer; Peter Stewart, architect and principal of Peter Stewart Consultancy; Jeremy Melvin, founder of Urbik; and Paul Finch, editorial director of The Architectural Review. The panel liked the fact that the programme for the Valley project is not simply about a building or even a series of mixed-use buildings, but about its contribution to a lively new urban quarter.
