Architecture in Utrecht
We've selected what we feel are the key examples of Utrecht Architecture. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.
We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Utrecht and the Netherlands. The focus is on contemporary buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.
We have 2 pages of Utrecht Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.

Light Installation Utrecht - 12 Apr 2013
A new narrative based light installation called ‘in lumine tuo…’ designed by UK design firm Speirs + Major was unveiled on Thursday 11 April, in Utrecht. Her Majesty Queen Beatrix, accompanied by His Highness Prince of Orange, Willem Alexander and Her Highness Princess Maxima, officially opened the celebrations for the tri-centenary of the Treaty of Utrecht by turning on the unique lighting installation that sets out to connect the iconic Dom Tower with the Dom Church and Dom Square. The piece is intended as both as a centrepiece for the city and as a fitting culmination to the ‘Trajectum Lumen’ initiative, a trail of artistic illumination that winds its way through the city centre every evening on the hour.

Turnzaal Nieuw Welgelegen Utrecht - 23 Nov 2012
This building is a sports hall dedicated to Gymnastics. It will not be used for any other sports. Four clubs combine efforts in this new facility. It is the 3rd and probably last building in the redevelopment of the sports complex in the center of Utrecht called Nieuw Welgelegen. The brief excluded the possibility of creating windows in the hall. This turns out to be the main dilemma for this type of facility.
