Day of ArchitectureOther / Other
June 21-22 2014, Various
The Royal Institute of Dutch Architects (BNA) has once again co-ordinated a day of appreciation for architecture throughout the Netherlands during the Day of Architecture on June 21!
Each year cities around the Netherlands hold special programmes highlighting often overlooked portions of their built envrionment.
Instead of monumental design, the Day of Architecture shifts the focus to more modern buildings or spaces that deserve special recognition.
The theme for the 2014 edition is Mensen maken de stad or People Make the City and encourages various cities to create tours, programmes and lectures that focus on the role the individual plays in contemporary urban design.
In each city, the events are arranged by an architect bureau or firm in the region and therefore adds a very local touch.
