Press release Habitat: Expanding Architecture9 OCTOBER 2018
Ecology is now a well-known concept in architecture and urban planning. The research installation Habitat: Expanding Architecture, on show from 19 October, highlights one of the first moments in which ecological thinking was introduced in architectural discussions: the tenth CIAM congress in Dubrovnik, 1956.
Lest We Forget6 SEPTEMBER 2018
How do we preserve and share Dutch design heritage? What form should a collection of Dutch design take? And what does this mean for developments in design and digital culture today? This autumn, Het Nieuwe Instituut spotlights the memory of design disciplines. Three different presentations and an extensive events programme each examine the remains of our material and spatial design culture from their own perspective.
