Graduation Show 2018

From Friday November 2 to Sunday November 4 the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture showed 36 graduation projects from the Master programmes in Architecture, Urbanism and Landscape Architecture at the Marineterrein in Amsterdam.

Nominations Archiprix NL
At the closure of the Graduation Show 2018, director Madeleine Maaskant announced the four nominations for the Archiprix NL. The nominated projects will participate in the prestigious prize for graduating talent from the Dutch design study programmes. The nominated graduation projects are: 'Liquid Land' by Anne Nieuwenhuijs (master of Landscape Architecture), 'Towards a happier Havana!' by Iruma Rodríguez Hernández (master Urbanism), ‘From One Room to Another' by Christiaan Schuit (master Architecture) and 'Un-United Nations Headquarters' by Lesia Topolnyk (master Architecture). The presentation of the Archiprix NL will take place in the spring of 2019.

Audience award
Visiting critic Daan Roggeveen announced the winner of the audience award, which was Alexey Boev with his graduation project 'Reopening democracy'.

Waste No More
The theme of the Graduation Show, curated by Bruno Vermeersch and Michiel Zegers, was Waste No More. They drew attention to the richness of scale models, sketches and other materials that often get lost during the design process.

A catalog with an overview of all 38 graduation projects, designed by Arthur Roeloffzen, can be bought at the Academy of Architecture (€7,50).
