The Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science Jet Bussemaker has awarded architect Donna van Milligen Bielke the €40,000 Prix de Rome Architecture 2014. A 2012 graduate from the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, Van Milligen Bielke won the prize for her “radical and poetic intervention” - Cabinet of Curiosities - for the Hoogstraat in Rotterdam.

The Prix de Rome is the oldest and largest prize in the Netherlands for architects and visual artists under 40, previously awarded to alumnus Ronald Rietveld in 2006.

“The international jury, chaired by Birgit Donker, awarded the prize to Van Milligen Bielke ‘for the radical and poetic intervention with which she proposes to frame architectural icons in the Laurenskwartier district. Various iconic buildings have been placed in individual containers, which results in exciting new public interspaces. By placing each piece of history in a different container, the banal and the serene in this radical plan come together effortlessly, while the large void of the Binnenrotte street is noiselessly ritualized.’”

The prize includes a work period in Rome.
