Belgian architects win more awards

The Realty exhibition of last week closed with a major event, the European Architecture Awards, organised by Archi-Europe, the European federation of architects. Once again, as had been the case earlier in the year at Mipim, Belgian architects were recognised for their work in some of the categories.

No less than 327 candidate projects from 32 countries were submitted to the organisers in collaboration with Realty (Artexis Fairs).

Among the winners were Brussels architectural bureau JDS Architects in conjunction with its Danish partners, for Faaborg Harbour Bath, a new seaside resort in Denmark. This won the prize in the ‘Urban Development’ category.

Coussée & Goris (Ghent) won the ‘Industry’ category for a type of building which we have not included on this site before: Hofheide Crematorium at Holsbeek.

Another Belgian architectural bureau, Philippe Samyn & Parthers, took the ‘City Housing Development’ award for a renovation project for 150 social apartments in Brussels (photo).

Speaking at the event, and echoing the opinion of many within the Belgian real estate industry, Arch-Europe CEO Jacques Allard said: “Bringing visionary ideas to fruition is not easy for the visionary architects of Belgium. They see their ideas blocked by ever more stringent legal directives, whose numbers never cease to increase. Managing to develop such complete projects as these is therefore a sign of a particularly high level of quality”.
