3XN wins the Dutch Building Award 2006 

The award for Netherlands’ best building in 2006 was received by Kim Herforth Nielsen, Principal Architect of Danish architects 3XN, at the Gala Dinner in Utrecht, on February 5. The Award was granted to the Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam, being this building’s most prestigious recognition yet. For the Building Award, five projects were nominated, each of them of very high standards. In the end, the jury decided for the ‘Danish’ Muziekgebouw. “I am amazed and grateful”, says Kim Herforth Nielsen. “The Muziekgebouw was one of 3XN’s first international projects, and we put a lot of effort into achieving a piece of unique architecture that places the end-user in the heart of the process. This approach was already our brand in Denmark; our challenge was to keep insisting on this when crossing borders.” The Music Building opened summer 2005, and has received large attention; already awarded internationally with the ULI Europe Award 2006, the Dedalo Minosse Award 2006 and the LEAF AWARD 2006.
