On Monday the 29th of April, Jan Peter Wingender gives a lecture about brick architecture at the Central Government Real Estate Agency of The Netherlands.
As part of the theme 'Architecture in times of climate change', Harm Tilman of trade journal de Architect writes about the Trippenhuis as an example of a way to 'preserve, reprogram and bring an existing situation to life'.
Both the façade of the Trippenhuis complex and one of the outer walls adjoining the courtyard have recently been cast in bronze. On the video you can see how craftsmen of Royal Eijsbouts cast a mold intended for the two bronze panels of the complex. Office Winhov has opted for bronze to create more unity with the adjacent historic building on the Kloveniersburgwal 29. Both parts are owned by the Central Government Real Estate Agency and house the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. Office Winhov is in charge of the transformation and renovation of the reception and public rooms, as well as the long-term vision for the restoration of the historic complex. HOEK architecture & preservation is responsible for the renovation of Kloveniersburgwal 29.
For the Alternative History exhibition we were asked to imagine a collaboration with architects from the past. We use an historic drawing as the seed for a design presented in a physical model.

Veldwerk Architecten, Ellis Woodman of the Architecture Foundation and Niall Hobhouse of Drawing Matter work together in the organization of the Alternative History exhibition project.
