Boring Hong Kong – Inge Goudsmit

Wednesday 4 April 2018, 19:30 - 21:00 hrs.
Academy of Architecture
Waterlooplein 211-213
1011 PG Amsterdam

In her lecture, architect Inge Goudsmit (OMA, Hong Kong) will discuss her extensive research on the nature of residential estates in Hong Kong and their social impact. Issues she will discuss include: how did residential planning Hong Kong develop into high rise development, and what are the up- and downsides of this – rather unique – model?

The C4C6 lectures are open to 2nd and 3rd year students at the Academy of Architecture. For them, all lectures are required, except Florian Idenburg's lecture on 28 March. This one is optional.

All the lectures take place in the Hoge Zaal at the Academy of Architecture, except for the lectures on 28.03, 11.04, 16.05 and 23.05. These will take place at Pakhuis de Zwijger and have free access to everyone who is interested.

The C4C6 lecture series aims to give master students at the Academy of Architecture a clear understanding of the current urban issues in Amsterdam. Secondly, the international perspective shows students that urban solutions generated in one part of the world can be an inspiration for cities in other countries.
