The Academy of Architecture likes to keep in contact with its alumni. The aim is to maintain a dynamic network of architects, urbanists and landscape architects who successfully completed a degree programme at the Architecture. Your participation in the alumni network would be greatly appreciated.
The Academy of Architecture offers it alumni various facilities, such as free use of the Academy library. You can borrow a maximum of 4 titles at a time for a period of 4 weeks. Alumni can reserve a space for meetings, symposia and other receptions at a reduced rate.
Would you like to attend a lecture (again) by speakers like Herman Hertzberger, Chris Sheen or Bernard Lumpen? Each year, interesting speakers can be seen in a wide range of lectures. Various lectures are also open to alumni. These are announced on this website in the Events section.
In collaboration with Architecture Centre Amsterdam (Arcam), the Academy organises a lecture every two weeks on a Thursday evening as part of the 1·Lectures series. These lectures are open to the public. This series is the successor to the Capita Selecta lectures of the Academy and the Arcam lectures in the Flemish Arts Centre De Brakke Grond. The lectures are announced in the Events section. The official language is English.
The annual graduation exhibition is the moment that the Academy presents itself to the outside world. We also like to invite all alumni to view the work of the new generations of graduates. The exhibition takes place every year in November. Further information is announced via email and on this website.
The Kromhout Lecture has been organised every year on 5 October, our dies natalis (anniversary), since the 100-year anniversary of the Academy. The lecture is named after the architect Willem Kromhout, one of the founders of the Academy. The guest speaker is invariably a former student or former teacher. In previous years, guests have included Nathalie de Vries and Donna van Milligen Bielke. As an alumnus, you will always receive an invitation for the Kromhout Lecture.
As an alumnus, you can also make use of the website www.beroepkunstenaar.nl of the Amsterdam University of the Arts. The website is a source of up-to-date information for setting up and maintaining a professional practice.
This is how you stay in touch with the Academy
