Exhibition Design, Architecture and Design Interventions

“Events: Situating the Temporary” is dedicated to the temporary in architecture, to its qualities, possibilities and effects, and to the place it occupies in contemporary history.
The book draws a connection between the development of the Amsterdam-based design office EventArchitectuur’s body of work over twenty-five years of practice, and the transforming understanding of a time based architecture, with an emphasis on Exhibition Design.

Festive Opening of Water & Mountain Idyll

photography by Jeroen Bosch

Idylls is an ongoing landscape project by EventArchitectuur. Landscape and landscape design are defined as a meaningful expression of our relation with nature. Each idyll expresses this by making spaces for contemplation in it’s own way in the transforming agricultural area of Lingezegen Park.

The Mountain Idyll is realized in collaboration with landscape architects Berdie Olthof and Nanne Bouma. The Water Idyll is realized in collaboration with landscape architects Jeroen Bosch and Tim de Weerd.
