1·Lectures: Hans van Heeswijk

Hans van Heeswijk

One City, One Decade
Hans van Heeswijk – Villas around Paris in the 1930s

In his lecture, Hans van Heeswijk will discuss two masterpieces of twentieth-century Parisian architecture: Villa Savoye by Le Corbusier and Maison de Verre by Pierre Chareau and Bernard Bijvoet. Of course, the architecture of these works will be discussed, but also, the history of their inhabitation, which has remained largely undiscussed in most publications. In passing, other houses will be touched upon, including more villas of Le Corbusier, the studio of Theo Van Doesburg in Meudon and hidden treasures such as the penthouse of Auguste Perret, the studio for Louis Barillet by Rob Mallet-Stevens and houses in serious disrepair such as Maison Zilveli by Jean Welz.

Date: Thursday, October 9th 2014, 8 PM
Location: Academy of Architecture, Waterlooplein 211, 1011 PG Amsterdam
Language: English
Tickets: € 5
Tickets are available in advance during regular opening hours at Arcam* and on the night of the lecture from 7.30 PM at the door of the Academy of Architecture. Academy students have free admission on presentation of their student card.
