Event Details

Studio Visits is a series of evenings dedicated to contemporary architectural practice and its challenges and possibilities. Inside Outside invites professionals, students and the broader public to cross the threshold, take a peek into the architects’ workplace, and join the conversation.

Italy, Qatar, ​Lebanon and ​Switzerland are some of the recent contexts in which Inside Outside created its characteristic inside, outside, and in-between environments. As carriers of local identities inscribed in synonymous global contexts, their work is developed in close collaboration with teams of renowned architects, engineers, gardeners, textile specialists, and artists. During this Studio Visit, participants are encouraged to engage in a conversation with the studio, to collectively explore ways of practicing in, and with, these various conditions and collaborators. 

Inside Outside was founded in 1991 by Petra Blaisse and has operated in a range of creative fields, designing landscapes, interiors and exhibitions. Their renowned projects include the Seattle Public Library, the Dutch Embassy in Berlin, landscape design for an IIT campus centre in Chicago, LocHal in Tilburg, the Biblioteca degli Alberi city park in Milan, and the Dutch Pavilion of the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2012. Blaisse has also collaborated with various architects and designers, including Rem Koolhaas, Irma Boom and SANAA. 

Studio Visits

Hosted and curated by an architectural studio in collaboration with Het Nieuwe Instituut, each evening will be organized around a tour, a presentation, an open conversation and a celebration. The gathering will serve as a catalyst for debate and architectural discourse; for strategizing urban policies and actions; for collaboration, forms of solidarity, and friendship as well as competition; and for - why not? - architectural gossip. Studio Visits is also a space in which to reformulate the social position of the architect in a fundamentally changed field of influence, by collectively exploring possible roles and responsibilities.

Previous Studio Visits were hosted by studios with diverse spatial configurations, forms of practice and portfolios: Powerhouse Company, Casanova+Hernandez, Lilith Ronner van Hooijdonk, LOLA Landscape Architects, MVRDV, Rotterdam’s Urban Development Team, Shift architecture urbanism and UNStudio.

Please note

The Studio Visits have space for a limited number of participants, while demand is great. If, after registering, you are unable to attend, please inform us as soon as possible do that someone else can attend.
