Exhibition Eindhovense School: A Forgotten Avant Garde

27 March 2018 00:00 till 19 April 2018 00:00 - Location: Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, BK Expo - By: Communication BK

Throughout the 1980s, a group of architects educated at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) came to be known as the ‘Eindhovense School’. This travelling exhibition explores this forefront of Dutch architects by revisiting the architecture and analysing the intellectual framework of this forgotten avant-garde.

The exhibition is the result of a long-term research project by the Curatorial Research Collective, illustrating the influence of the Eindhovense School through text, photos, drawings, publications and models. Early projects of architects Wim van den Bergh, Ralph Brodrück, Jos van Eldonk, Johan Kappetein, Bert Staal, Rudy Uytenhaak, Gert-Jan Willemse, and René van Zuuk are also on display.

On 29 March at 16:30, the exhibition will be opened in Room R.
