The New Academy

Agency, Research, Workshop

Fri 01 Apr 2022

Rotterdam can be regarded as an archive of knowledge, of which only a fraction is made visible and utilized. There is, however, much more knowledge at hands that can contribute to a city that is better functioning for, and is more closely connected to, all its inhabitants. The New Academy is an initiative of Het Nieuwe Instituut in collaboration with Braidotti which aims to make urban transformation an inclusive process that does justice to a multifaceted city like Rotterdam.

I See That I See What You Don't See

Agency, Research, Exhibition

01 Mar — 29 Dec 2019

In a world that is always switched on, the traditional dichotomy between day and night no longer seems relevant in terms of productivity, while the experience of clear, starry skies has become a rarity. I See That I See What You Don't See takes the complex relationships between light and dark, between seeing and not seeing, as a starting point for an exploration of their conflicting effects on humans, the Earth and other organisms.

Track Changes

Architecture Biennale Sao Paulo 2013

04 Nov — 07 Nov 2013

In November 2013 The New Institute and Crimson Architectural Historians organized a series of public meetings during the X Bienal de São Paulo called ‘Track Changes’. A generation of architects and urbanists, who are connected through a common attitude, were invited to meet in an arena built especially for the occasion. Whether working in the favelas of South America, the slums of India or in the crumbling housing estates of Europe, this generation has replaced the large-scale top down masterplan and the iconic hypermodern building with a participative, temporary and flexible bottom-up approach.

Network Archives Design and Digital Culture

The Network Archives Design and Digital Culture has therefore been created as a partnership between heritage organisations including Het Nieuwe Instituut, knowledge and research institutions, and individual archives of Dutch design heritage.
