Graduation Weekend 2022
The Amsterdam Academy of Architecture aspires to be an institute that generates solutions and perspectives for the future. It is up to the next generation of designers to create spatial conditions for a sustainable and inclusive future. Binding Together tries to put these words into action. A 99% circular exhibition, giving new life to used local products. Not everything needs to be new or perfect – we already have enough stuff in the world (and at the Academy!).
The doors of the Academy of Architecture open on 4, 5 and 6 November — we invite you to come and see what the future might look like!

50 YEARS OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
2022 also marks the 50th year of our Landscape Architecture programme, founded in 1972 to give students the knowledge, insight and skills to solve spatial problems through design — from garden to region to planet. This year will host several festive events to celebrate this jubilee.
To kick off our special programme on Saturday at 16:00, our 2022 Artist in Residence Selçuk Balamir will present the Winter School publication After Shell. In this calendar, students show how Shell's global infrastructure can be repurposed. In series of colourful images we travel around the world and through time. We see how a history of disaster is transformed into a voluminous wall calendar that covers the four coming decades of a just transition, from the 2020s to the 2050s.
This year, the Kromhout lecture will be held by alumnus, landscape architect and nature optimist Thijs de Zeeuw in the Hoge Zaal at the Academy of Architecture. After the lecture, Thijs de Zeeuw, Dirk Sijmons, Charlotte van der Woude and Rachel Borovská will discuss the concept of nature optimism from a human perspective. Join this afternoon in-person or online!
We look forward to welcoming you at the Academy soon!
