Dick van Gameren lecture in Glasgow
Dick van Gameren, partner at Mecanoo and professor of Architecture and Dwelling at Delft University of Technology will give the lecture ‘Standards and Ideals in Dutch Social Design 1914 – 2014’ in Glasgow, Scotland on December 12th 2014. The lecture is part of the seminar ‘Context, Values & Ideals. Defining shared values and the role of design in volume house building’; the first of a series called ‘Place Identity Dwelling’, organised by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute.
The series seeks to address the issues of improving the quality of the built environment in Scotland by prioritising architectural design. Through the facilitation of knowledge exchange across European borders and sharing of expertise among academia, industry, government and regulatory bodies across design, planning and policy, finance and housing, the programme will redefine the collective identity and character of contemporary suburban housing in Scotland and its particular relationships to our society, urban centres, landscape and environment.
