Since November 2020, we are taking a Virtual World Tour and “visiting” selected countries around the world to meet some of their most relevant architects. Now that we can not meet you and our speakers at a fully booked auditorium, we will bring the speakers directly to your homes and offices! 

On Wednesday, March 10th, 2021 live from 19:00 to 20:30 CET we will “visit” the Netherlands and meet two of its most remarkable architects. If you can’t make it live, save the link and watch it later.

The two following Dutch architects will talk on our virtual stage about their personal experiences and important creative periods in their lives and, as always at “AnA“, none of their projects may be mentioned:

– Nanne de Ru, Powerhouse Company, Rotterdam, www.powerhouse-company.com
– Dikkie Scipio, KAAN Architecten, Rotterdam, www.kaanarchitecten.com

This event is kindly supported by JUNG and Cosentino.
