"Wordt het nog wat, met De Hofbogen in Rotterdam? Crimson Architectural Historians pleit voor een lange adem en pakt de draad na de werkzaamheden in 2013 te hebben afgerond, op eigen initiatief weer op. Zij bekeken hoe het scenario uit 2008 voor transformatie van het voormalige treinviaduct in Rotterdam-Noord op een andere manier te realiseren is. Door in te spelen op de energie en kennis van bewonersinitiatieven, ondernemers en andere partijen rondom de lijn en langzaamaan een ketting van juweeltjes te rijgen..."

Een realistische ontwerpvisie voor de transformatie van het 1.9 km lange monumentale spoorviaduct De Hofbogen. Gebaseerd op zeven jaar ervaring in de weerbarstige praktijk en tot stand gekomen door directe participatie van betrokken huurders en bewoners.

In het voorjaar van 2013 initieerde Crimson Architectural Historians ter afsluiting van de directie van het projectbureau de Hofbogen een ontwerpvisie voor het 1.9 km lange dak van het voormalige spoorviaduct de Hofbogen. Crimson deed dit samen met Londens ontwerpbureau muf architecture/art. De visie vormt een verdere uitwerking van de Toekomstvisie De Hofbogen. Het Langste Gebouw van Rotterdam die in 2008 door Hofbogen BV werd gepresenteerd. In dit document werden een reeks ideeën en plannen voor de toekomst van de Hofbogen uiteengezet, zowel in als op de bogen.

De eens geplande grootschalige gebiedsontwikkelingen rondom de Hofbogen, waarop de plannen uit de Toekomstvisie grotendeels waren gebaseerd, zijn echter niet langer meer aan de orde. Bovendien is (...) >>>

Debatavond:
07/03/2014

Met een publieke avond komt het debatprogramma Track Changes, dat plaatsvond tijdens de architectuurbiënnale van São Paulo op 4, 5 en 6 november 2013, thuis in Nederland.

Een internationaal gezelschap van architecten, stedenbouwkundigen, economen, ontwikkelaars, politici en architectuurhistorici sprak in Brazilië over de heftige veranderingen die een maatschappij ondergaat in periodes van economische, politieke of sociale crises, en over de rol die architecten en stedenbouwkundigen daarin kunnen spelen. De thema’s ‘What’s Your Crisis?’, ‘Bottom-up Is Not Enough’ en ‘We the People’ vormden de leidraad voor de debatten.

In São Paulo zorgde ‘Bottom up is not enough’ voor het felste debat. Het grootste deel van het internationale gezelschap was het eens met de stelling, maar over de manier waarop dit in de praktijk (...) >>>

Naar aanleiding van de door het Stimuleringsfonds voor Creatieve Industrie uitgeschreven Open Oproep met het thema Stedenbouw zonder grondopbrengsten, is Crimson Architectural Historians geselecteerd om een onderzoeksvoorstel binnen dit thema voor te bereiden. Het doel van de Open Oproep is het delen van nieuwe praktijken en het ontwikkelen van nieuwe kennis, strategieën en ideeën die bijdragen aan de grondige herziening van de huidige stedenbouw. Door het wegvallen van de reguliere opbrengsten uit projectmatige gebiedsontwikkeling is immers de voedingsbodem onder de publieke stedenbouw weggeslagen.

Publication by Michelle Provoost

Architect Hugh Maaskant (1907-1977) played a major role in modern Dutch architecture. He designed revolutionary, complex, large-scale buildings with metropolitan allure, like the Groothandelsgebouw and the Euromast in Rotterdam and the Scheveningen Pier. In Maaskant: Architect of Progress architecture historian and Maaskant expert Michelle Provoost places Maaskant in an international and historical perspective.

Hugh Maaskant is considered the godfather and forerunner of the generation of Winy Maas (MVRDV), Adriaan Geuze (West 8), Willem Jan Neutelings and Rem Koolhaas. Yet he was underappreciated for many years. Provoost describes Maaskant’s work as part of the optimistic, stimulating aspect of post-war reconstruction and the exciting world of the 1960s. She also places him in the context of Dutch architecture, both of his time and of later generations, particularly the ‘Super Dutch’.

‘Foremost, I admire Maaskant for his understated mix of common sense and capraciousness’ — Rem Koolhaas Architect Hugh Maaskant (1907-1977) played a major role in modern Dutch architecture. He (...) >>>

Stad.Academie organiseert lezing Michelle Provoost
vrijdag 29 november om 19 uur

Stad.Academie, de nieuwe opleiding voor huidige en nieuwe stadmakers in de Euregio, is officieel van start gegaan. Lezingen in het curriculum van Stad.Academie zijn openbaar.

Zo geeft op vrijdag 29 november om 19 uur architectuurhistorica Michelle Provoost de lezing ‘Bottom-up is not enough’ bij Bureau Europa in de Timmerfabriek. Klik hier voor meer informatie.

Michelle Provoost onderzoekt in haar lezing onze positie in deze tijd van crisis en de richting die we met z’n allen inslaan. Van Newark tot Sao Paulo, van Amsterdam tot Mumbai, overal zien we dezelfde trend van politiek geëngageerde doe-het-zelf architectuur opduiken bij biënnales en architectuurevenementen. Ontwerpers en activisten kiezen heel bewust voor deze succesvolle bottom-up initiatieven. Daarnaast ontstaat er nu een echte industrie van tijdelijkheid, pop-up, crowdsourcing en participatieprojecten, zonder de ambitie van een groter, strategisch doel. Is het te vermijden dat deze praktijken alleen maar een modern fenomeen worden, overgenomen door de markt en instellingen? En wat kunnen we leren van eerdere crises?

Datum: 29 november 2013 Tijd: 19.00 uur Taal: Engels Toegang: € 5,- Locatie: Bureau Europa, Timmerfabriek, Boschstraat 9, Maastricht >>>
