With a plan to replace the current VAT with taxation on added carbon (CO2) a broad consortium of designers and researchers has won the first prize of the tenth edition of the Eo Wijers competition last Friday.
FABRIC was co-author of the winning plan that was drawn up by in close collaboration with a consortium of engineering and consulting office Witteveen+Bos, H+N+S Landscape architects, FABRIC architecture urbanism, advice- and design office WING, research and consulting office CE Delft and bureau marco.broekman.
The Eo Wijers competition is an initiative of the Eo Wijers foundation, an independent network aiming to contribute to the improvement of spatial quality in the Netherlands above local scale. Submissions for the competition are made anonymous. The Eo Wijers foundation chose the Stedendriehoek region as setting for the 2014-2015 competition, because of this region’s ambition to become energy neutral in 2030.
