For their collaboration on Zaans Medical Center, Silo and Mecanoo have been named as one of the five finalists in the category Architecture +Branding of the Architizer A+ Awards. In addition to the professional jury, the public may also vote for their favorite project.
The Architizer A+ Awards aims to promote and celebrate the best architecture and products. The annual award programme’s mission is to nurture the appreciation of meaningful architecture in the world and champion its potential for a positive impact on everyday life.
The Architecture +Branding category is about innovative ways of dealing with branded experiences and the built environment. For Zaans Medical Center, Silo developed a subtle identity layer which enriches the experience of the patients, visitors, and employees. The result is a healing environment that uses storytelling to strengthen the hospital’s bond with the region.
The public vote is open until July 20. The winners of both the jury prize and the public vote will be announced on July 30, 2018. Earlier this year, Zaans Medical Center was awarded a People’s Choice Frame Award.
