'LIEFDE VOOR RUIMTE'
Based on the quote of Jaap Bakema in 1963 'Love for space' Gus Tielens spoke on the Annual Congress of the magazine 'de Architect' about architecture and housing. In times of transition there seems to be a focus on process and role. In her lecture she emphasized the need to define our ambitions concerning spatial quality, collectiveness, public space, construction methods, material and all that is part of architecture. Debate on process and role in architecture should always be related to spatial quality to continue and embrace new times and methods.

WINNAAR ZUIDERKERKPRIJS 2012
De jaarlijkse Amsterdamse Zuiderkerkprijs 2012 is door wethouder Maarten van Poelgeest toegekend aan het project Haveneiland Oost Blok 46c dat korth tielens architecten in opdracht van Ymere ontworpen heeft. De prijs is voor de vijftiende keer uitgereikt voor het beste woningbouwproject dat het afgelopen jaar is gerealiseerd en is een waardering voor de combinatie architectuur en opdrachtgeverschap. De jury bestaande uit Arnold Reijndorp (juryvoorzitter en Bijzonder Hoogleraar Universiteit van Amsterdam), Suzanne Mulder (architectuurhistoricus) en Tom Frantzen (Frantzen et al architecten en winnaar Zuiderkerkprijs 2011): "Sociale woningbouw heeft zo langzamerhand een imago van schraalheid, mede door het 'hufterproof' maken van collectieve ruimten, maar hier wordt overtuigend aangetoond hoe je met eenvoudige middelen veel kwaliteit kunt realiseren. Door het woonblok negentig graden te draaien ontstaat er een nieuw openbaar plein tussen het woongebouw en het tegenoverliggende schoolgebouw. Dit plein is nadrukkelijk opgenomen in het ontwerp. Het project laat zien dat je heel goed een sociaal woningbouwproject kan maken dat met kop en schouders uitsteekt boven veel van de rest en zich met trots plaatst in de rijke traditie van de sociale woningbouw in Nederland."

Ellis Woodman wrote an article in British magazine Building Design about housing project Leidsche Rijn. The project is a part of the VINEX estates. "From outside the block appears to belong firmly within the tradition of buildings such as Vienna's Karl Max Hof or the Adam brothers' Adelphi in London - projects that make palaces of mass housing."
