18-6 till 18-9 Exhibition "Architecture as a discipline: a retrospective"
The definition of architecture as a discipline is not as obvious as it may seem. Opinions on the required knowledge, skills and abilities of an architect were constantly changing. This exhibition investigates these opinions by showing a selection of architectural drawings from the collection of the Koninklijk Oudheidkundig Genootschap, supplemented with some fine examples of architectural books from the Trésor Collection of the TU Delft Library.

The writing is on the map
After a visit to America prominent Dutch architect Berlage was inspired by the spacious ‘parkways’ of New York. He wanted to translate the same concept to Amsterdam. ‘Parkway’ symbolised an a spacious, multifunctional area for him, whereas the municipality decided on a more practical solution in the shape of a wide street with trees, and called them ‘lanes’. The way we describe things paints different pictures to the reader. Looking at urbanism with the eyes of a linguist can render revealing new insights in our cultural history.
