Call for Entries: INDESEM 2019


Applications for INDESEM 2019 are open! From 10 – 17 May 2019, 80 students from all over the world will have the opportunity to work on a design project accompanied by lectures from and discussions with renowned architects and theorists.

INDESEM, International Design Seminar, is a biennial, founded by a group of students in 1962 and re-initiated by Herman Hertzberger in 1986. The program of INDESEM consists of an excursion, lectures, debates and a workshop, all organized around a contemporary theme. Every edition aims to raise awareness about this theme and its consequences for the architectural practice. Speakers with different opinions will be invited to share their thoughts, creating an environment in which students, tutors, architects and theorists engage in conversation and discussion about the current and future position of the architect.

Since its founding INDESEM has had the honor of hosting internationally acclaimed architects and theorists, such as Aldo van Eyck, Jean Nouvel, Rem Koolhaas, Pezo Von Ellrichshausen, Renzo Piano, Saskia Sassen, Winy Maas, Sou Fujimoto and Ben van Berkel.

Speakers that have thus far been confirmed:
Herman Hertzberger, Reinier de Graaf (OMA), Saskia Sassen, Winy Maas (MVRDV), Caroline Bos (UNStudio), Junya Ishigami, Fala Atelier, Eko Prawoto, Elma van Boxel (ZUS), Ronald Rietveld en David Habets (RAAAF), Momoyo.
