Family Scraper de Maasbode nominated the Job Dura Prijs 2020.

The Job Dura Prize 2020 had the theme 'Living: at home in Rotterdam'. Projects that provide innovative or exemplary solutions for the housing challenge of the city of Rotterdam have been sought and thus respond in several ways to improving the quality of life of its residents, both now and in the future.

Family Scraper De Maasbode was nominated. The jury is impressed by the in-depth research that preceded the development of this new housing concept and sees this initiative as a serious response to keep families in the city. It shows the guts of the developer to opt for innovation and quality in such a clear way, partly through the oversized outdoor spaces that are being realized in the project and the addition of spacious family homes. The design of the Maasbode is also very convincing and of the highest order in terms of spatial layout and materialization.

Opening Architecture Biennale of Soa Paulo Brazil where van Bergen Kolpa takes part on the Dutch exhibition entry 'Architecture of consequence' curated by Ole Bouman and Saskia van Stein with the projects Park Supermarkt en Nabuurschappen.

Van Bergen Kolpa Architecten mede vertegenwoordigt Nederland op de 8e Architectuur Biënnale van Sao Paulo met twee projecten; Park Supermarkt en de net opgeleverde Nabuurschappen in Hoogvliet.

Bij de tentoonstelling genaamd 'Architecture of Consequence', gecureerd door het Nederlands Architectuur Instituut (NAi), is een gelijknamig boek verschenen. In het boek Architectuur als Noodzaak - Nederlandse ontwerpen voor de toekomst komt het werk van 25 Nederlandse ontwerpbureaus aan bod, die allemaal vanuit een maatschappelijke urgentie werken. Aan de hand van de conclusies uit de manifestatie Maak ons Land is de hedendaagse ontwerppraktijk onder de loep genomen.

Het resultaat is een agenda voor ruimtelijke innovatie waarmee de ruimtelijke ordening en architectuur de komende jaren vooruit kunnen. Het sluit aan bij het wereldwijd groeiende besef dat het beantwoorden van fundamentele kwesties van onze tijd een zaak van iedereen is. De thema's zijn universeel; ze beroeren en motiveren de hele internationale architectuurgemeenschap. Daarmee is dit boek tevens een oproep tot het ontwerpen van een betere wereld.

De internationale reizende tentoonstelling 'Architecture of Consequence' toont een wisselende selectie van dezelfde ontwerpbureaus als in het gelijknamige boek, afgestemd op de locatie waar de tentoonstelling te zien zal zijn. De getoonde ontwerpen zijn ontstaan vanuit de ambitie om bij te dragen aan een duurzame toekomst. Door ze op verschillende schaalniveaus te tonen wordt de thematiek verder uitgediept. 

Met bijdragen van: 2012Architecten, Atelier Kempe Thill, biq stadsontwerp, Must urbanism, OMA, Powerhouse Company, Rietveld Landscape, STEALTH.unlimited, Van Bergen Kolpa Architecten, ZUS.
