The situation in the United States was clamorous with the pass of Hurricane Sandy and uncoordinated electrical infrastructure, organized in fragmented and unclosed circuits, by relying on independent private companies. Same problem, even without debate have the UK rail system. Now MIT wants to consider a short but intense analysis with this conference on 8 and 9 April.

NEW GENERATIONS. ANNE HOLTROP.

Anne Holtrop studio. Interview. [VIDEO] by Itinerant Office.
metalocus, Laura Canto.
Continuing with the number of interviews that Intinerance Office carry out for its own project New Generations, this time it is the turn to the Dutch studio Ann Holtrop, whose work ranges from architecture models to temporary and permanent buildings, on which he occasionally collaborates with the modern artists Krijn de Koning and Bas Princen.

Rem Koolhaas
