1·Lectures | WeBuildHomes | One Catalog


A new season of 1·Lectures, the architecture lectures that go beyond the issues of the day, is about to get underway. The Amsterdam Centre for Architecture and the Academy of Architecture Amsterdam are, for the third time, organizing an inspiring Thursday evening of lectures in Amsterdam every two weeks, in which a diverse range of subjects from the international world of architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture will be addressed.

1Lectures poster WeBuildHomes

Tjeerd Haccou, co-founder of WeBuildHomes, believes that everyone ought to be able to build his or her own sustainable dream home for an affordable price. To this end, WeBuildHomes put together a catalogue of materials. Various architects were then invited to design dwellings using the catalogue. This has resulted in a library full of unique dwellings from which private individuals can choose their dream home.

Two of the architects who have designed for the catalogue are Auguste van Oppen (BETA office for architecture and the city) and Metin van Zijl (Studioninedots). In the third 1·Lectures, together with Tjeerd Haccou, they discuss the thinking behind WeBuildHomes, the designs, their inspiration and experiences.
