Keynote by Francine Houben at ‘Dag van de Projectontwikkeling’
Francine Houben will give a keynote speech at the ‘Dag van de Projectontwikkeling’ (DVDP – Project Development Day) in Den Bosch on Thursday May 18, 2017.
In the lecture, she will present her ideas on how to create better a built environment. Presenting various Mecanoo projects, she will address the key challenges ahead and the importance of collaboration, innovation and craftsmanship. In her vision, each project should be carefully considered in terms of its cultural setting, location and time. Designs which are embedded within their context will be those that contribute to the happiness and wellbeing of the people who use them.
In addition to the lecture, Francine Houben is also a jury member for the NEPROM award. The award will be given to excellent and innovative public-private development collaborations. Project Development Day is organised by the NEPROM, together with various partners.
The theme for this year’s edition is 'Making space for happiness'.
The event takes place at convention centre 1931 in Den Bosch.
