Winterlezingen 2017



A new series of Winter Lectures on the city and its infrastructure

This winter we will be back with a lecture series on the city of Amsterdam. After earlier successful editions on the banks of the IJ and on Amsterdam’s parks and squares, this year’s series addresses the city’s infrastructure. How were key connections in the city developed and how have they affected the city’s fabric?

In a series of six Sunday afternoons, each lecture focuses on a key infrastructural project, its history and its effects on the city at large. Among the projects discussed are the city’s harbor, the ring highway A10, the subway and the planned connection across the IJ (‘Sprong over het IJ’). The lectures are held throughout the city. Every lecture comes with a special activity, such as a boat or walking tour.
