The Knight's Move
The lecture by Fritz Haeg is also part of 'The Knight's Move', a series of lectures by eminent international speakers who stand out by their unusual, enlightening and inspirational visions concerning the city, urbanity, the public domain, and community. Just as the knight moves in an atypical and unusual way across the chessboard, Stroom likewise wants to cut across all disciplines and thus stimulate rethinking the city.

This series of lectures is made possible by the financial support of the Netherlands Architecture Fund.
