Beukenhof Auditorium and Crematorium – 4 Mar 2013
Asymptote Architecture is pleased to announce winning a 2013 Progressive Architecture Award for the Beukenhof Auditorium and Crematorium. The Annual Progressive Architecture Awards has long been associated with many movements that have “pushed the design envelope at a given moment”. As the P/A Awards celebrates its 60th anniversary, this year’s jury discovered that, as a whole, contemporary architects seem to be focusing on what Ehrlich describes as “moving toward trendlessness and diverging into positive sub practices.”
