ACTA wins Hedy d'Ancona award
The building of ACTA in Amsterdam, designed by van Benthem Crouwel Architekten, has won the Hedy d'Ancona award 2012. The project was selected from six nominated projects.
According to the jury, the building of international allure has an exceptionally well detailed architecture. "Down to the smallest details, the theme, a streamlined environment for healthcare, education and research, has been committed. The building impresses directly at entry and that is exactly what patients, students and researchers in the high-quality dentistry box that gives confidence in the building is performed, taught and examined. "
A special construction part is the large cantilever of the superstructure. One storey high half-timbered structures, which have been integrated into the architectural design, enable this.
