We are very happy to have received this special mention for our design for the Cuyperspassage
at Amsterdam Central Station. On the 20th
of June architect/partner Pascal Cornips was in Barcelona to receive the award from director Mr. Vicenç Villatoro of the CBBB, (Center for Contemporary Culture Barcelona), where the award ceremony took place.
From the jury: ‘Intensively used all hours of the day and night, and accommodating 15,000 cyclists a day, Cuyperspassage is a great improvement in the urban infrastructure. Unlike many other tunnels, installed with less attention to detail, the interior of this one demonstrates that functional clarity is not incompatible with delicate touches and symbolism. It is clean, safe, and welcoming, which are especially positive features from the gender perspective. Far from wasting money, investing public funds to make such places more people-friendly means democratizing public space.’
The Cuyperspassage is part of our Masterplan for Amsterdam Central Station and the tile design is from Studio Irma Boom
