Housing After the Credit Crisis
This week's cultural ambassador is magazine Volume.
Housing After the Credit Crisis.
Global warming and the credit crisis call for a reconsideration of the way housing is produced in the Netherlands. The curators of the Collective exhibition propose to introduce a standard for the sizes of building lots and urban blocks, so projects can be built on multiple sites. In an expert meeting, organized by Volume magazine, the viability and the pros and cons of this proposal in relation to the Dutch (urban) design practice are discussed.
Participants: Frank Bijdendijk, Bart Goldhoorn, and Jeroen Schildt.
Moderator is Arjen oosterman, chief editor of Volume.
Every Friday afternoon, within the context of the Open City Event program at the 4th International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR), a local 'cultural ambassador' will act as the host or hostess of a performance, presentation or discussion relating to the theme of the week.
