ArchitectsParty, cocktails in the architecture practices of Europe, arrives in the Netherlands for the second time. From 29 November to 2 December the itinerant event gathers enthusiasts and sector professionals in famous practices based in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, making it possible to visit creative locations normally accessible only to a few and to make direct acquaintance with the architects and their works.

The seven practices involved in the Dutch event are all active both in Holland and abroad.

Four evenings and seven exclusive parties, which this year will also compete in the ArchitectsParty Award: guests can vote online for what they thought was the most fun evening, the most inspiring decor or the best dj set.

Tuesday 29 November | Hilversum, C4ID
Wednesday 30 November | Amsterdam, Framework Studio
Thursday 1 December | Amsterdam, Mark Koehler Architects
Friday 2 December | Rotterdam, KOOL ontwerpers + Natrufied Architecture + Orange Architects | Studio OxL.

Apartments in the former Philips building RAG

Piet Hein Eek transformed a former industrial Philips-building into several apartments. A project realized by architectural firm Eek and Iggie Dekkers.

The former Philips Complex “Strijp R” where Eek has his atelier, is also the area of his latest project. During the Philips era, the RAG building was used as a pumping station for air, which was used for compression or vacuum in the manufacturing processes. The pumping station is one of the buildings in “Strijp R” that wasn’t demolished. It is now situated between newly built residential buildings.

Late summer in Rotterdam Author: Benjo, Posted: September 8th, 2016 Filed under: events, local stories

Either as city trip for the weekend or on your way from Amsterdam to Brussels, September and October are great summer months to visit Rotterdam. Busy, but not crowded, as the Rotterdam streets are extremely forgiving to crowds.

The city is ranking high on international trip advising lists, because of its architecture, the activities, the accessibility and of course the connection with its harbor. Since 2014, the Van Nelle Fabriek has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, giving this modernistic coffee and tobacco factory a world renowned status. Though still underestimated and in the shadows of its big brother Amsterdam, Rotterdam can be seen as the capital of modern architecture and industrial heritage of the Netherlands.

Pictures of the Markthal (MVRDV), the Rotterdam high-rise (OMA) and the Central Train Station (Benthem & Crouwel, Meyer & van Schooten, West 8) went viral and thus Rotterdam suddenly was world famous, and not only among architecture lovers.

What’s the best way to visit Rotterdam and enjoy its culture and architecture?
