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.
Wiel Arets is one of the most influential architects in the Netherlands and also has a major reputation abroad. His firm WAA has offices in the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland and has realized projects in Europe, North America, Asia and Africa. His style is minimalist and geometric. In Amsterdam, WAA recently completed the IJ-hal in the city’s central train station.
During the evening, Wiel Arets talks about his search for influences beyond the immediate domain of architecture and how he translates these into values for the built environment.
