Nomination Nieuwbouwprijs!
The buildings that JSA has designed on the Westerdok Island are nominated for the Amsterdamse Nieuwbouwprijs 2010, a prize for the best newly built housing development in Amsterdam. The buildings are part of the so-called VOC-Cour. 

For the prize, a longlist containing 58 projects was composed of projects that were delivered between August 2008 and August 2009. Ten of these projects are nominated for the final round.

The nominated projects were announced on August 27 in Het Parool, the Amsterdam-based newspaper. In September Het Parool, as well as the local television station AT5, will present two of the projects each week, with interviews of the residents, the architects, the builders and the initiators.

Like the earlier three editions of the Nieuwbouwprijs, the residents themselves will decide what they think is the best newly built housing development in the city. From the end of August, all inhabitants of Amsterdam (and all other people) can vote for one of the ten nominated projects.

On October 7, the Amsterdamse Nieuwbouwprijs 2010 will be awarded to the housing project that received most of the votes.
