Audience award
Visiting critic Indira van ’t Klooster announced the winner of the audience award, which was Patrick Roegiers with his graduation project ‘A Sense of Home’.

Circular exhibition
The theme of the Graduation Show, curated by Bruno Vermeersch, is PLAN NULL. It can no longer be ignored; too many exhibitions end up as waste. In fact, we do not design exhibitions, we design trash. PLAN NULL puts an end to that and embraces the circularity and the recycling potential that building materials should have.

A catalog with an overview of all graduation projects, can be bought for only € 5,- at the Academy of Architecture. Editor: Vibeke Gieskes, graphic design: Arthur Roeloffzen. Click here for the digital version.
