The winner of the Building Passion Woman of the Year Award is Anjelica Cicilia (32) from architectural firm KOW in the Hague.
The news announced yesterday evening in the Lijm- & Cultuur Fabriek in Delft, during the book presentation for Building Passion by initiator Laura Stevens.
This is a book of 100+1 women who work in the building business with a specific goal - to make them more visible.
The nominee’s were announced in September. They were Maartje Lammers (24H Architecture, Rotterdam), Sabine van den Boom (Heddes Bouw, Hoorn), Michelle Prins (DEC, Volker Wessels, Amersfoort), Elphi Nelissen (Nelissen Ingenieursbureau, Eindhoven) and the winner Anjelica Cicilia (KOW, The Hague).
The jury chairman, Harm Tilman and the four other jury members: Heleen Mees, Myrthe Hilkens, Ellen Sander and Hans Lensvelt chose Anjelica Cicilia unanimously. The award was handed to her by Laura Stevens. Anjelica Cicilia is a role model for others and was evidently very surprised with her award. At a young age she has reached a prominent position at a renowned architecture office and within the building business.
