On 11 October 2012, the faculty of Architecture at TU Delft and Architectuurstudio HH will be organising the symposium ‘The future of Architecture’ to mark the occasion of Herman Hertzberger's 80th birthday. National and international speakers will be taking a look at the future of a quickly changing architectural scene.

Symposium – The future of Architecture

How does the world change, and the meaning of architecture with it? What are the opportunities and challenges for the future? At the request of Herman Hertzberger, architects from home and abroad will give their vision on the future of architecture on 11 October. Anna Heringer will discuss the amazing (public) spaces that arise in countries where there is much less money available for architecture. Is that where the future lies for architecture? Lacaton & Vassal will then show their credible, new solutions for design and construction. A sneak preview of the architecture of the future? Representing the Netherlands will be the architects Kamiel Klaasse, Nanne de Ru, Hedwig Heinsman, Marijn Schenk and Jan Jongert. Rudy Stroink of TCN will also be presenting his vision from the perspective of the developer. Finally, students of the faculty of Architecture – the architects of the future – will present their views on the future.

Herman Hertzberger 80 years

Herman Hertzberger will introduce and conclude the symposium and reveal a little bit about how 80 years of architecture will be continued.  He will also go head-to-head with the various speakers on their visions for the future. All the contributions to the symposium will be collected in an anthology: ‘The future of Architecture’.
