Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem and Ramon Vilalta, three architects, originating from Olot – in the Catalonian region of Spain – have been selected as the 2017 Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureates.
They founded their firm RCR Arquitectes, in their hometown in 1988. Their work demonstrates an unyielding commitment to place and its narrative, to create spaces that are in discourse with their respective contexts. Harmonizing materiality with transparency, Aranda, Pigem and Vilalta seek connections between the exterior and interior, resulting in emotional and experiential architecture .The locally-based architects evoke universal identity through their creative and extensive use of modern materials including recycled steel and plastic.

”The jury has selected three architects who have been working collaboratively for nearly three decades . Mr. Aranda, Ms . Pigem and Mr. Vilalta have had an impact on the discipline far beyond their immediate area . Their works range from public and private spaces to cultural venues and educational institutions, and their ability to intensely relate the environment specific to each site is a testament to their process and deep integrity.” – Mr. Pritzker

“The collaboration of these three architects produces uncompromising architecture of a poetic level, representing timeless work that reflects great respect for the past, while projecting clarity that is of the present and the future.” – Glenn Murcutt, Jury Chair

3rd edition MIMOA guide – mei Author: Mieke, Posted: February 1st, 2017 Filed under: MIMOA guides

mei guide 12.2016 kaft voorThis pocket guide features the work of the Dutch architecture firm Mei architects and planners. It includes 16 of the best works of Mei in The Netherlands, mostly located in their hometown Rotterdam and varying from a small and detailed bridge between two monuments, to the famous Schiecentrale and a sneak preview of the design of one of the largest re-use projects in the Netherlands in the coming years.

The work of Mei is introduced by a preface written by the Dutch architecture critic Piet Vollaard. "If the architecture of Mei could be summed up in one slogan, then it would be something like: no-nonsense modernist redevelopment architecture."

Apartments in the former Philips building RAG

Piet Hein Eek transformed a former industrial Philips-building into several apartments. A project realized by architectural firm Eek and Iggie Dekkers.

The former Philips Complex “Strijp R” where Eek has his atelier, is also the area of his latest project. During the Philips era, the RAG building was used as a pumping station for air, which was used for compression or vacuum in the manufacturing processes. The pumping station is one of the buildings in “Strijp R” that wasn’t demolished. It is now situated between newly built residential buildings.
