Part of:
Ângela Ferreira Revolutionary Traces

In The Hague the figure of Âlvaro Siza marks the start of a revolution in social housing and urban renewal. For the office of Geurst & Schulze the collaboration with Siza in the Schilderswijk was of great importance: the participation of the residents, the attention for what was already there, the citing of (historical) architectural references. Jeroen Geurst will reflect on these times, and will compare them to the current state of social housing projects, in the light of architecture and participation by the residents. Other guests this evening who will join Jeroen Geurst in this discussion are: Endry van Velzen (De Nijl Architecten) and Olof van de Wal (Leef de stad)
