Thursday 18 February 2016, 20:00 - 21:30 hrs.
Academy of Architecture
Waterlooplein 211-213
1011 PG Amsterdam

The work of Herman Zeinstra (Dok architects) has a distinctive signature: lucid proportions, expressive use of materials and great attention to detail. Detailed hand-drafted sketches always form part of his design process. In the second 1.Lecture of the season, Zeinstra looks back at the high and low points of his career and discusses his personal favourites.

Herman Zeinstra has received various awards for his work over the years, including the Dino-bokaal (2002) for the éminence grise of Dutch architecture and in 2005 the Zuiderkerkprijs for the best housing project in Amsterdam.

The 1·Lectures series is organized by the Amsterdam Centre for Architecture and the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture. Renowned designers, from home and abroad, will discuss current issues in the field of architecture, urbanism and landscape design. The 1·Lectures take place at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, Waterlooplein 213 in Amsterdam. They are held on a biweekly basis on Thursday evenings, starting at 20:00.

Advance tickets costing €5 are available online. In addition, tickets can be purchased at the door from 19:30 on the evening of the lecture itself (if available). Academy students are entitled to free admission on presentation of their student ID card. All lectures are held in English.
