Overview

In 2002 the Netherlands Architecture Institute awarded its first NAI Prize to design firm MVRDV. Given in honor of the best building by a Dutch architect under 40 years of age, this prize was again awarded in 2004 under the title of the AM-NAI Prize. Fresher Facts presents the four nominated projects through detailed drawings and text, and explains the context in which they were created. Contributions by various members of the jury--Herman Hertzberger, Bernard Tschumi and Aaron Betsky, to name just a few--present a snapshot of the work of the youngest generation of Dutch architects.
