Ene Neutelings, Michiel Riedijk. NEUTELINGS-RIEDIJK

Neutelings Riedijk Architects was founded in 1987 by Willem Jan Neutelings and Michiel Riedijk. Over the past twenty-five years Neutelings Riedijk Architects has established itself internationally as a leading practice, specializing in the design and realization of complex projects for public, commercial and cultural buildings. They have designed and built theatres, concert halls, city halls, museums, libraries, hotels, schools and office buildings. We have wide experience in balancing the complex functions and logistics of these projects with their often delicate historical and urban contexts to give them the iconic significance in the public realm that their clients desire.

The work of Neutelings Riedijk Architects has gained worldwide appreciation through numerous publications in the international press. The office has received awards such as the Golden Pyramid, the Belgian Building Award, the BNA-Cube and the Rotterdam-Maaskant Prize and has been shortlisted for the Mies van der Rohe Award. Its work has been selected for exhibitions in Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Venice, Beijing, São Paulo, Barcelona, Moscow and Prague, amongst others.
