NEXT CONNECTS: STADMAKEN

‘NEXT connects’ as the theme that runs through our portfolio and work method: from infrastructure and urban planning to housing and cultural buildings. By reflecting on the role designs play in their environment, we 'connect' on different levels people to places, people to people, and people to culture. In this series of publications we illustrate this design approach by focusing on specific narratives that are central to our architectural practice.

Seoulutions for dutch cities

In this book, NEXT architects is comparing the potential and the limitations of the planning methods in Seoul and the Netherlands. The present Dutch toolbox takes as its premise a static end result whereas, in NEXT architects opinion, the practice should be informed by dynamic and continuous developments and transformations. In the first part, the office examines the controlling mechanisms of urban-design practice in Seoul and collects cartographical information and data from four districts. This is followed by an in-depth study of the district and the collating of the transformation of buildings. In the second part of the study, NEXT architects pinpoints the limitations of the Dutch planning model and carries out design-based research into the potential impact of a dynamic planning method.

'Seoulutions for Dutch cities' was part of a research programme of the Creative industries fund.

YOU CAN'T CHANGE CHINA, CHINA CHANGES YOU


'You can't change China, China changes you' is John van de Water's personal, disarming and occasionally hilarious account of this compelling and confrontational quest for an authentic achitecture. Are western design skills able to evolve in a cultural context as radically different as that of China?

CITIES FULL OF SPACE

Cities throughout the world are becoming increasingly inefficient in their management of the space available to them. Personal land use is also increasing dramatically; in the Netherlands for instance, this is now twelve times what it was a century ago. And this development is expected to continue worldwide. In his architectural practice and as a professor at Delft University of Technology, Rudy Uytenhaak conducted a study into the densities of the built environment and into ways of offering sufficient spatial compensation for the achieved density.
