Let’s Gro Francine Houben in Groningen
Francine Houben will be the main guest at the Let’s Gro festival on Friday November 20 in Groningen, the Netherlands. In her lecture, she will reflect on Mecanoo’s work in the Groningen region and how public buildings can play an important role in revitalising cities. After the lecture, Pieter Bregman will interview Francine about her experiences in Groningen and her thoughts on recent developments in the city centre.
Let’s Gro is an inspirational three-day festival about the future of the city and the surrounding region. Francine is no stranger to Groningen - she went to high school there before being the architect responsible for the 1989 ‘Space by Space’ masterplan in the city centre, still easily recognizable today by the use of the yellow stones. More recently, she designed the apartment complex Kop van Oost.
The event starts at 8pm on Friday 20th November in the Spiegeltent at the Vismarkt. Entrance is free, although space is limited so make sure you arrive on time to not miss out.
