Metropolitan Clubtalk: (ont) hecht het stedelijke weefsel?

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a workshop, seminar, course or other meeting


Podcast. In a new series from the Metropolitan Club, we talk to guests from design practice, government, and education. In an informal setting (talkshow) we talk for an hour about pressing and important social questions and tasks that are alive in the domain of Urban Design.

By discussing social themes between government, practice and education, students can see and learn which confrontations one encounters when achieving ideals in this unruly world. In addition, it is good and important that themes and topics are discussed between decisive and leading people in the fields of work. The talks can be the start of topics and themes that can be further embedded in research and education and that can possibly get more firmly on the agenda in design practice and government. The ‘How’ will also become an important part of the conversations.

This conversation may be critical, open, and confrontational. The edges are traced. The conversation will be recorded as a podcast. In this informal setting there is room for about 30 people in the audience (students/teachers/practice). They can also be involved with questions at the end of the conversation. The first episode will take place on June 22, 13-15h, and has the title of “(ont) hecht het stedelijk weefsel?”. It will count with the following guests: Flora Nycolaas (gemeente Amsterdam), Birgit Hausleitner (TU Delft), and Daan Zandbelt (De Zwarte Hond). The conversation is moderated by Robbert Jan van der Veen.
