Exhibition

The New Garden

Exhibition

10 May 2015 — 31 Dec 2017

Construction of The New Garden started in the spring of 2015 on the outdoor area around Het Nieuwe Instituut. Artist/designer Frank Bruggeman and ecological gardener Hans Engelbrecht have developed a plan to turn the strip of grass along Jongkindstraat into a place of encounter set amidst vegetation. At the same time, reeds and water-purifying plants breathe life into the pond in front of the building. In addition, The New Garden will connect with the Arcade, the covered space along Rochussenstraat, thus also enlivening this desolate side of the building.

Exhibition

It showcases architecture’s potential to identify the urgent issues of our time, featuring 22 case studies that illustrate how international and often multidisciplinary groups invented and adopted new methods outside of traditional design practices.
