On november 17th/18th the winners of the WAN Awards 2021 will be announced.

Underground bicycle parking Leidseplein

At a complex inner-city location, a sophisticated design, innovative construction method and an unique collaboration have resulted in an outstanding underground bicycle parking with 2000 places, a design of architectural studio ZJA in collaboration with artist Hans van Houwelingen and in commission of the municipality of Amsterdam.

Venue Building Middelkerke

The municipality of Middelkerke in Belgium will soon be enriched with an iconic casino. The new casino will not be housed in a dedicated building, but will be integrated in the landscape in a way that rewrites the historic relationship of the coastal town with the sea. It will be designed and built by the Nautilus consortium; a collaboration between developer Ciril, chief designers ZJA (architecture) and DELVA (landscape architecture), OZ (casino and hotel design), executive architect Bureau Bouwtechniek and contractors Furnibo and Democo, and assisted by experts from COBE, VK Engineering, Beersnielsen, Witteveen+Bos, Plantec, MINT and Sertius.
