The NHBOS Foundation promotes landscape architecture in the Netherlands by providing support to individuals and specific activities. The Foundation was established in 1953 by Mrs N.H. Bos, assistant to J.T.P. Bijhouwer, the first professor of landscape architecture at the then Agricultural University in Wageningen. One of the Foundation’s activities is awarding the Bijhouwer Prize.
The Bijhouwer Award Ceremony and Lecture is organised every three years by the NVTL and the NHBOS Foundation.
