University of Amsterdam makes RIBA International List 2018

AHMM’s project to transform the University of Amsterdam’s Roeterseiland Campus has been included on the RIBA International List 2018, and will now be considered for the RIBA Awards for International Excellence, which form the shortlist for the RIBA International Prize. The recently completed project – which has already won the AJ Retrofit of the Year Award, and WAN Education Award – has reinvented the campus, designed in the 1960s by Norbert Gawronski, to provide a new home for the Amsterdam Law School and Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences with lecture theatres, libraries, tutorial, seminar and meeting spaces, and a collection of public rooms with views across the city. The phased intervention has seen the revealing of the previously obscured canal through radical ‘surgery’ to one of the campus blocks as well as the creation of new public space. Awarded every two years since 2016, the RIBA International Prize is given to a building which exemplifies design excellence and architectural ambition, and delivers meaningful social impact.
