MVRDV - Jacob van Rijs, Beyond the Cover at Het Nieuwe Instituut

Jacob van Rijs, Beyond the Cover at Het Nieuwe Instituut

Jacob van Rijs, co-founder of MVRDV, will be present at Beyond the Cover, an event series organised by Het Nieuwe Instituut (HNI), exploring the stories behind a selection of seminal buildings. The series invites architects to go beyond the familiar imagery by contextualizing a single building in relation to regulations, finance, and policies, making visible the political, economic, and social relations that constructed architecture embodies. For this iteration, on September 2019 Jacob van Rijs will use the WoZoCo project (1997) as a lens to reflect upon the changing conditions of architecture practice.

Date:  12 September 2019, 19:30 – 21:30 CEST

Location:  Het Nieuwe Instituut, Museumpark 25, Auditorium, 3015 CB Rotterdam
