The Amsterdam Academy of Architecture and Arcam are jointly launching 'One Lectures', a new series of architecture lectures intended for architecture students and all others interested. Experts, icons, newcomers and outsiders are invited to address topics related to architecture, urban and landscape design that are linked to current issues.
On September 11th, exactly thirteen years after the attacks by Al Qaeda in 2001, architectural historian and author Wim de Wagt commences the series with a lecture on the reconstruction of the World Trade Center in New York. In a story of an hour, with many unique images, he will elaborate on the significance of architecture as an art of remembering.
Time and venue
The lectures take place on Thursday nights and start at 8 pm at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, Waterlooplein 213 in Amsterdam. Tickets cost €5 and can be purchased at the door from 7.30 pm. A limited number of Academy students have free admission on presentation of their student card. The lectures are in English.
