Residential tower De Verkenner in Utrecht has won an international Architecture and Design award: the Archmarathon Award 2017 in the category Mixed Use & Residential Buildings. The prize was awarded last weekend in Milan.
Archmarathon is an international event organized by Publicomm in collaboration with the Milan MADE Expo that promotes the international exchange of ideas, know-how and relationships. The first Edition was held in Milano in 2014. The 4 days of the event saw the participation of 28 international studios who presented their own projects to a large audience and the prestigious jury of Luca Molinari, Francisco Mangado and Vincenzo Latina.
