MELKWEGBRIDGE AT SHOW, “TRANSITIONAL SPACES FOR THE 21ST-CENTURY CITY”, 4 MAY – 5 JUNE, GALERIE PASSAGE DU DÉSIR, PARIS
Shortcuts, transitional spaces, special routes, passages (tunnels, bridges, walkways, urban cable ways, escalators…) facilitate access for all to the city. They're also places of sensory experience, of transition between different physical, cultural or symbolic worlds. The exhibition shows the diversity of urban barriers in the world and educates visitors about the role of passages as everyday spaces in today’s urban mobilities.
The exhibition “Passages, transitional spaces for the 21st-century city” starts its international tour in Gallery Passage du Désir, Paris.
PRESENTATION DESIGN STUDY FOR MORE VIABILITY AND SPACE, APRIL 7TH AT TU DELFT

On Easter Monday there is an extensive program. Besides the official program, we invite everyone for a stroll on the Zaligepad across the park over the water.

NEXT DESIGNED THE ZALIGEBRUG FOR THE 'ROOM FOR THE WAAL RIVER' PROJECT
The Zaligebrug (Citadelbrug) connects the new Veur-Lent island with the Northern Waal riverbank. The Zaligebrug is a bridge that spans the ancillary channel as a winding path (zalige pad). The bridge blends very 'natural' with the floodplain landscape, where the access to the bridge appears very adventurously. The bridge will be completed this March. The 'Room for the Waal River' project is part of the national program 'Room for the River'.
A nice drone video provides a bird's eye view of the project.
Lianjiang Butterfly Bay in the Chinese city Fuzhou, is one of the NEXT-projects that have been realised last year.
The site is located next to a branch of the Min River. The aim of the masterplan is the exploit the proximity of water by connecting to as many buildings as possible.
BICYCLE BRIDGE NAMED AFTER DAFNE SCHIPPERS

HESTIA OPERATES FROM THE REGGIO EMILIA PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
NEXT architects and Claudia Linders have translated the Reggio Emilia philosophy into a spatial concept of the building as a city: a collection of different spaces within which children can always find a new place; can go exploring. Just like in a real town, all rooms connected to each other and go from large to small space, from high to low space.
The building has received different nominations for the design. This week Hestia celebrates its 12,5 years anniversary.
THE MELKWEGBRIDGE AT SHOW, 25 MARCH - 23 OCTOBER IN DESIGN MUSEUM GHENT, BELGIUM
Bike to the Future, a joint effort of Design museum Gent and the IMF Foundation, offers a glimpse of the future of the bike. Both talent and inventiveness are the driving forces behind this exhibition, where brilliant ideas and ingenious prototypes are key.
The bicycle has a profound impact on the development of towns and cities, provoking new design typologies and urban infrastructures such as novel bike-specific bridges and tunnels. Now more than ever, urban planning is heading back to the future - back to when cities were life-sized places with rational and practical solutions for moving people around.
DIKE AS LANDSCAPE ICON
The water rises, the dikes are getting higher and higher and are subjected to change. Are we capable of designing an ‘Adaptieve Dijk’ (adaptive dike), that’s meant to change, on the rhythm of the climate and society? NEXT architects has examined within an interdisciplinary team, with H+N+S landscape architects amongst others, the opportunities for spatial development along the Waal dike and outlined strategies for dike transition for the next 100 years.
This research was held as part of the design study 'Adaptieve dijk' (adaptive dike), initiated by BNA Research in cooperation with the Dutch water boards and the Delta Design Platform.
NEXT DESIGNED THE INTERIOR OF THE RENEWED HOLLAND BOULEVARD
Anyone who is going an international flight at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol may encounter these signs with the images of NEXT architects. The renewed Holland Boulevard is a new lounge at the airport. The project will be delivered this year. 2016 is the year that Schiphol celebrates its 100th anniversary.
