Berlage Master Class: “Architecture without Architects…Architects without Architecture?

The Berlage is pleased to announce that internationally acclaimed architect Ben van Berkel, cofounder and principal architect of UN Studio, is leading a design master class in November 2014 entitled “Architecture without Architects.. Architects without Architecture?”

The master class, to take place from Thursday, 13 November to Friday, 21 November in both Amsterdam and Delft, will focus on strategies for designing contemporary knowledge environments in relation to the changing nature of knowledge generation. Participants will explore how different “smart” initiatives, organizational patterns, communication interfaces, and alternative forms of interaction and collaboration are affecting architecture as a professional discipline; while, at the same time, redefining the role of the architect.

Participants will develop a speculative design scenario for the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS), a newly established collaborative initiative for urban research from MIT, TU Delft, and University of Wageningen. The master class will use AMS as a fictional client, asking participants to define a small-scale architectural invention that houses
facilities for research, debate, and display.

Interested applicants should send a CV and portfolio to the Berlage by Wednesday, 15 October.

The Berlage Center for Advanced Studies in Architecture and Urban Design is a renown postgraduate educational institution at the Delft University of Technology. UN Studio is an Amsterdam-based international architectural practice specializing in architecture, urban development, and infrastructural projects, founded in 1988 by Ben van Berkel and Caroline Bos.
