Event Details

Are you interested in architecture and design, and its impact on the world? State Library of Queensland, in partnership with The University of Queensland's School of Architecture, is proud to announce the next speaker in the 2019 line-up of the UQ international architecture lecture series.

About the speaker
Marijn Schenk is one of the founders of NEXT architects. He graduated in 1999 from the Technical University of Delft, Faculty of Architecture. Together with Bart Reuser, Marijn received the first prize of the ARCHIPRIX 2000 for the project 'The Layered Land'.

About the talk
Hear Marijn Schenk speak about an architecture that connects. 

Interdisciplinarity, collaborations and looking at the bigger picture are the key words when it comes to the strength of the Dutch design approach. This keynote presentation, titled “Connected: Architecture of Mobility”, is about an architecture that connects, combines, collects, interacts and supports; it is an architecture defined by what it does and not by what it is. Special infrastructure and urban projects, including the inventive Dafne Schippers bridge in Utrecht, the renewed international departure hall at Schiphol Airport and the iconic Elastic Perspective in Carnisselande, will be discussed in the broader context of the Dutch design tradition.

2019 UQ international architecture lecture series is a partnership between State Library of Queensland and The University of Queensland’s School of Architecture.

Date: Tuesday 29 October 2019
