The Modern Architecture Game
The Modern Architecture Game is the second edition of the architecture game. The first edition was launched on 30 August 1999. It was the first project collaboration involving the four partners at NEXT architects and was distributed in the private environment of Delft University of Technology.
Ten years later, we\'ve produced a revised version of the game, analytically unravelled and improved. This edition is an international version, in the sense that it is produced in English, but also that the questions range right across the breadth of modern world history.
This means that many of the questions about the Netherlands that were abundant in the first version have been dropped, unless they were significant in relation to world-wide developments. By introducing these changes, we have endeavoured to make the game suitable for an extremely broad and international group of architecture enthusiasts.
Test your knowledge of the greatest architects, their famous buildings and legendary quotes.
The board game is created and produced by NEXT architects. Distribution for retailers will be provided by Idea Books

Official launch tournament
December 16th marked the launch of the Modern Architecture Game, the new board game containing over 1000 questions regarding architecture from the 20th and 21st century. To celebrate this event, NEXT architects organized a tournament. Everyone interested in participating could join. Winner of the evening was Hans Ibelings, a Dutch architectural critic. He was named the first official Dutch Allround Architectural expert 2011.
Over 30 participants joined the tournament that consisted of 3 rounds in total. After the tournament, everyone expressed excitement and enthusiasm about the game. “The questions are educational and challenging, but the element of play makes it fun to participate.”
