Lecturers
Architect Paul Whalen is partner of the New York-based firm Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA). Together with the Dutch architects of Rijnboutt they were responsible for the design of the redevelopment of the Beurspassage.

Developer Frank van Kessel is partner of Top Vastgoed. Commissioned by Bouwinvest, Top Vastgoed definited the redevelopment scheme of the properties Damrak 70, 80 en Nieuwendijk 196.

Artists Arno Coenen and Iris Roskam (known for their ceiling piece ‘Horn of Plenty’ at the Markthal Rotterdam), together with artist Hans van Benthem (known for his famous chandeliers that featured in Viktor & Rolf campagnes), realised the ‘Amsterdam Oersoep’ art piece. They used exceptional materials and traditional craftsmanship. Hans van Benthem decorated the passage with chandeliers that are inspired by bicycle parts.
