Home Edition 2020
Let’s keep the cultural life alive! As a consequence of Covid-19, our social and cultural life has been reduced to a minimum and we all need to adapt to this unprecedented situation. Since we have a commitment with you, with the architecture scene, we came up with this new idea that is meant to lift your spirits and provide you with some genuine inspiration – at your home. Therefore, from Monday, March 23rd, onwards, each day at 7 p.m. we will be sharing one of the unique talks from the previous 35 events that we have held during the last 5 years.
TALK #21: Michiel Riedijk
About Michiel Riedijk

In 1992, he established the Rotterdam based office, Neutelings Riedijk Architects, with Willem Jan Neutelings. Some exemplar works are the MAS Museum in Antwerp, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum, and the Culture House ‘Rozet’ in Arnhem. Currently the office is working on several projects such as the Dutch Natural History Museum ‘Naturalis’ in Leiden, the ‘ZIL Art’ Towers in Moscow and the ‘Gare Maritime’ in Brussels. Since 2007, Riedijk has also been a Professor of Public Building at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at the Technical University Delft.

The work of Neutelings Riedijk Architects has received worldwide appreciation through numerous publications, international awards and exhibitions around the world.
AnA Antwerp 01 – On November 21, 2019, we held our first event in Belgium. Two well-known Belgian architects and one international guest talked about their personal experiences and important creative periods in their lives. Michiel Riedijk, Christine Conix and Julien De Smedt.
This talk is presented with the support of Aritco.
Michiel Riedijk reminds us of the role we as architects take on. He explains the importance of understanding what being part of a chain means and how this enables us to produce more interesting and meaningful work. We as architects have the power to promote positive change through the decisions we make.
Aritco’s lifts are made of 95% recyclable materials and do not need major site preparations to be installed. Aritco’s goal is to make their lifts fully recyclable in the future. By choosing Aritco for your project or own home you do not only save time and budget needed for installation but also make a greener, more sustainable choice. Working with a small space but still want to make it more accessible and improve the overall value? Aritco home lifts are available in different sizes, designed to meet all requirements for comfort, space and design. Find more of their high-end lifts here: Aritco Home Lifts.
