Higgs Young Architects
London-based practice Higgs Young Architects has started on site with its prize-winning Europan 3 project,10 years after first producing the scheme. Gary Young and Gabrielle Higgs won first prize with the residential project in 1994 for a site in Haarlem in the Netherlands.The theme for Europan 3, the biennial pan-European competition to promote the work of young architects, was 'At home in the city - urbanising residential areas'.
The project suffered delays because of pollution on the site and the need to reach agreements with the landowners. Completion is now due by summer 2004.
