Dag van de Ontwerpkracht

Posted on  

Last July 6, there was a successful new edition of the “Dag van de Ontwerpkracht”.

An inspiring day with interesting research perspectives about the design of the Netherlands in the distant future how to deal with the rising sea level, but also smaller on a smaller scale how resident can participate in design processes improving innovative housing concepts that enrich new (urban) developments.

“Dag van de Ontwerpkracht” is part of Platform Ontwerp NL, an interdisciplinary collaboration between all professional associations in the Netherlands that are active in the field of architecture and in which Taco is involved in his role as co-chair of the BNI.

Spacegrazers is a collaboration between Plan-H project management, Toplab Architects
and a joined team of workspace specialists.
