The prize aims to highlight policy developments and realized projects in the field of architecture, urban development, landscape and heritage with and exemplary function.

De Kwekerij is a new green space in the center of Hilversum with space for local entrepreneurship and programming. You can meet for a game of jeu des boules and a locally brewed beer, a cup of coffee and a vegan muffin. You will find the most special local sustainable products from Hilversum, join a pop-up concert of the Metropele Orchestra, wait on a bench for your train or view an open-air exhibition.
