Mirte’s graduation project Stromende Kracht was awarded an honourable mention during Archiprix 2018.
Stromende Kracht is a new way to address the different challenges the Dutch rivier landscape has to deal with. Instead of fitting all the functions like water safety, nature conservation, shipping, etc. the proposal tries to make stakeholders rethink their approach. What are the forces that shaped this landscape and how can we make use of them to move forward to an area stretching from the east to west borders of our country that is resilient, low in maintenance, high in biodiversity and a must visit for recreationists.
The Archiprix is an annual competition for the best architectural graduation project, selected from the different design educations in the Netherlands.
