Making Architecture: Ronald Rietveld

Lezing / Debat

Join us for an insightful evening lecture organized together with Juliette Bekkering. Hopefully, we’ll see you there, everyone is welcome!

Ronald Rietveld (1972, Gorinchem, NL) graduated in 2004 cum laude at the Amsterdam Academy of Arts. His working period during Prix de Rome 2006 at the Rijksakademie of Visual Arts in Amsterdam was the early beginning of RAAAF. After winning the golden medal he founded the multidisciplinary studio together with his brother and Socrates Professor in Philosophy Erik Rietveld.

RAAAF was responsible for Vacant NL, the Dutch contribution to the Venice Biennale 2010. RAAAF has won numerous awards, including the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture 2023, under the patronage of UNESCO, European Prize of Architecture 2017 and Prix de Rome 2006. The various juries emphasize the ability of Ronald and Erik to cross and stretch the disciplinary borders of visual art, architecture and philosophy.

Ronald & Erik work at the intersection of visual art, architecture and philosophy. “We make seemingly impossible site-specific interventions in the living environment based on an urge to explore and reflect on what is possible in contemporary life.”
