Guy Mouton
jury Chair 

Guy Mouton is a structural engineer. The quintessence in his work is to pursuit an optimal synergy between structure and architecture to ultimately state that structure is architecture. His structural concepts go beyond structural efficiency, they reinforce the architectural concept. Moreover, they sometimes challenge it! The spread position between structure and architecture, required of the engineer, is what fascinates Guy.

 Guy Mouton graduated as a civil engineer architect at the University of Ghent where he was assistant for 10 years. From 1994 to 2015 he was professor structural studies at the Faculty of Architecture of the Catholic University of Leuven campus Ghent and Brussels. He founded his own practice in 1978, which later became Studieburo Mouton and from which Mouton was founded in 2015. Mouton is directed by Lieven Tone Houdmont.

Olivier Gallez
NEY+Partners / UCL 

 As structural engineer Olivier is engaged in projects aiming at overcoming barriers between all fields involved in the construction process, enabling a holistic approach in his civil engineering consultancy practice and in his academic activities. His design approach of special structures is based on the understanding of materials’ properties and on the research of an efficient geometry.     

 Olivier graduated in Civil Engineer Architect at the UCL Louvain [BE] and obtained a master’s degree in Urban Design from the UPC Barcelona [ES]. Before joining the structural engineering office NEY+Partners, where he became one of the Partners, he collaborated for some years with architectural offices includingRCR ArquitectesandBeth Galí. Since 2013, he is guest lecturer at the UCL where he lectures on structural and territorial engineering for both engineers and architects.  

Hilde Huyghe 
Tomas Nollet en Hilde Huyghe architecten 
Coussée en Goris architecten 

 Hilde is mainly involved in projects of small to medium scale, which she elaborates entirely herself from design to execution. Her architectural language is characterized by simplicity and logic, with particular attention to materiality and detail.

Hilde graduated as Master of Architecture in 1991 in Sint-Lucas Ghent. She worked at the architectural office of Stéphane Beel for 6 years. After that she started her own firm together with Tomas Nollet. Currently she works part-time for her own projects in her office in Bruges and is a part-time collaborator at Coussée and Goris architecten in Ghent.

Tania Vandenbussche 
Architecten Els Claessens en Tania Vandenbussche

 Tania works with ectv architecten on projects of varying scale and programme, from a small pavilion to larger public and residential buildings. For them it is not only the quality of the design itself that counts, but also the added value of the project for the city, the village or the landscape. 

 Tania graduated as an architect from the Sint-Lucas Higher Architecture Institute in Ghent and started working with Els Claessens in 1997. She has been teaching in a design studio of the UGent for a long time and is a member of the Quality Chamber of Architecture in Ghent.

 In 2008, he established BAUKUNST in Brussels and from 2017 in Lausanne. Besides his current teaching position at the Université Catholique de Louvain, diploma tutor, Adrien Verschuere is regularly invited as guest critic or lecturer in various institutions, among others: the FAUP Porto, IRGE Universität Stuttgart, Berlage Institute Rotterdam,  USI Accademia di Architettura Mendrisio, ETH Zürich and the EPF Lausanne. In 2017, the first built projects were both nominated to the Mies van der Rohe AwardSince 2019, Adrien Verschuere isVisiting Professor at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland.


Diederik Veenendaal
Summum Engineering

Juliette Bekkering
TU Eindhoven / Bekkering Adams Architecten
jury chair

Juliette’s view of architecture is the search for the revelation that a physical experience of space can summon; a sensory experience, the discovery of continuously changing views and uses of the design. She is dedicated to strong architectural form, smart programmatical and spatial organization and technical innovation to shape the future of the built environment. This will be her focus in the jury.

Juliette graduated with honours at the TU Delft Architecture and finalized a post-graduate education in Urban design at Barcelona Polytechnic University. She worked at several renowned architectural offices, including OMA before establishing her own office in 1997. In 2005 she founded in collaboration with Monica Adams the office Bekkering Adams Architecten. Since 2013 she is also full professor Architectural Design and Engineering at TU Eindhoven.

Marieke Kums

Together with STUDIO MAKS, Marieke designs projects varying from small art installations, to building projects and urban schemes in the Netherlands and abroad. She generates a program free architecture that focuses on building relationships with the surrounding (natural) environment. This will be her focus in the jury.


Marieke Kums studied at the MIT in Boston and at Delft University of Technology from which she received her MSc Arch degree cum laude. She worked with SANAA / Kazuyo Sejima & Ruye Nishizawa in Tokyo before starting her own firm STUDIO MAKS in 2010. The Rotterdam based studio has won many awards, most recently the 40 under 40 talent award. Earlier this year Park Vijversburg was nominated for the EU Mies van der Rohe Award 2019.

Max Rink
Rink Tilanus Architecten 

Max´s projects are often found in the scale of small and medium scaled buildings and objects with a strong material presence. His work is guided by research into the process of making and logic of construction as principles to achieve raw yet modern objects and spaces. Sustainability therein is not a mere necessity but used as transformative force to rethink our human impact from the ground up.

 Max Rink studied at the ETH Zürich and at Delft University of Technology from where he received his Master of Science with honourable mention. Before starting his own firm SPRIKK and consecutively RINK TILANUS, he worked with OMA / Rem Koolhaas. Since 2009 Max Rink is active team member in the Archiprix Foundation.


Niels van der Hulst
Geelen Beton

Niels’s strong side is to link practical technology with the feeling for human proportions. He strives to make the fabrication of concrete products more efficient and on the other hand is interested in trying out innovations. He always participates in the workshops Experimental Concrete where architects and producers together generate new applications and forms for concrete. His focus in the jury will be the practicability and novelty of the design.


Niels has grown from planner of steel reinforcements to technical director of a factory for prefab concrete. He has studied for concrete engineer and concrete technology at the Betonvereniging and is currently studying for his Master in Business Learning (MBL) besides his work.
