Arnhem Central Station Wins Zumtobel Group Award for Urban Developments & Initiatives


 

We are honored and proud to announce that Arnhem Central Station has won the Zumtobel Group Award in the category of Urban Developments & Initiatives.
The “Zumtobel Group Award – Innovations for Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment” is an architectural award that acts as a stimulus for new developments and concepts in the built environment that help meet current and future demands for improved urban living conditions and energy needs.

"There was one project that stood out I think, and that’s UNStudio’s project ... It is a social structure, it is extremely complex, it’s a real live thing, it’s something that is happening in many places in Europe. It set a fantastic example for how things should be done and could be done. And I’m hoping that it will have effect on decision makers around the world who are actually dealing with the same thing.”
Kjetil Trædal Thorsen, Snohetta Architects
