In each edition (this is the 40th), Archiprix presents the most talented graduates from Dutch institutions offering master’s programmes in architecture, urban design, landscape architecture and (in this and the previous edition) interior architecture. These are the designers that will literally shape the future, in the Netherlands and beyond.
Besides presenting these young talents and their inspirational projects, Archiprix sees an important role for itself as an ‘agent of change’. Change is the most significant constant in the field of spatial design. This will certainly apply to an extreme degree in the years to come, given the drastic modifications necessary in the spatial arena. The social housing brief, the energy transition, our physical infrastructure, climate change, the threat posed by infectious viruses – all these and more demand the commitment of expert designers.
The projects Archiprix presents in this exhibition are a pointed illustration of how this role of agent of change can take shape. Virtually every one broaches a challenge relevant today and endows it with new perspectives. Everyone, whether client, policy-maker, teacher, curator or student, can not only take note of these projects but can also get in touch with their designers, so that the knowledge and talent they possess can benefit the quality of the environment, built and unbuilt, as soon and as effectively as possible.

About Gallery 3 By You
Gallery 3 By You is Het Nieuwe Instituut’s initiative to make museum presentation space available to makers from the field.
Talent at Het Nieuwe Instituut
Het Nieuwe Instituut explores the concept of talent and discusses it with designers, makers, curators, policymakers, the education sector and other stakeholders.
Studio Visits is a series of evenings dedicated to contemporary architectural practice, its challenges and its possibilities. The series invites professionals, students and the broader public to cross the threshold and take a peek into the architect’s workplace.
Het Nieuwe Instituut has instigated research in architecture, design and digital culture since its foundation in 2013, fostering programmes, exhibitions, lectures, archival investigations and publications in the Netherlands and internationally. Through its annual Fellowship programme, Het Nieuwe Instituut’s Research Department acknowledges and gives visibility to research projects offering departures from established modes of thinking. For this iteration, the Open Call for Fellows focuses on the theme Regeneration. New Institutional Practices. Following recent calls on bodily burn-out (2018) and planetary exhaustion (2019), the 2020 programme invites collectives to take current conditions of burn-out and exhaustion as a point of departure to generate forms of collective organisation and action.
