‘Our jurors were incredibly impressed with your explanation of the goals of the project, and the successful integration of the artwork into the space. In addition, the collaborative process between all of the parties involved is an outstanding achievement.’ We found these kind words in our mailbox upon our return from the summer holidays, announcing that the Amsterdam North-South subway line is a CODAawards Merit Winner!
The internationally acclaimed CODAawards celebrate the projects that most successfully integrate commissioned art into interior, architectural, or public spaces. From 435 projects from 26 countries submitted this year to the awards, the jury panel of the 2019 CODAawards placed the Amsterdam North-South subway line in the 2019 CODAawards Top 100. The jury prize in the transportation category ended up going to ‘CHORUS’, an artwork by Ann Hamilton located at the World Trade Center Cortlandt Station in lower Manhattan.
However the North-South subway line project was rewarded with a Merit Award in the transportation category. We are very happy with and proud of this recognition of our work commissioned by and in collaboration with the City of Amsterdam, BNTHMCRWL and of course all the artists.
