Ministry of Make!


In September we offer a 4-day workshop with Elma van Boxel and Kristian Koreman as part of the Ministry of Make! initiative. The results will be exhibited at the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam in October 2022.

Just like many other countries in the world, the Netherlands is currently facing multiple crises; next to a housing shortage of 1 million homes, we have to deal with the consequences of climate change, soil subsidence, a nitrogen surplus and the energy transition. Therefore ZUS, MANN and the International Architecture Biennial of Rotterdam have taken the initiative to initiate the Ministry of Make! – calling on a hundred design teams to use their collective knowledge and imagination to come up with new designs for the Netherlands.

During this studio, we will work as a team to research one of the test sites. We will visit the location and invite inspiring speakers to provide input and give us direction. Eventually, we will develop a future-proof concept for 10,000 sustainable homes. The result will be united with the other 99 models at the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, where they will be exhibited from 14 October – 13 November in an old natural gas container in Rotterdam.

Participation fee: 200 euros.
