Weekend with Oris in Dubrovnik: Introducing the speakers - Willem Jan Neutelings
We are introducing the speakers at Weekend with Oris in Dubrovnik!
Willem Jan Neutelings, the winner of the Rotterdam Maaskant Prize and a guest lecturer at Harvard University together with Michiel Riedijk is a co–founder of the Rotterdam–based architecture practice, Neutelings Riedijk Architects.
Willem Jan Neutelings is a co–founder of the Rotterdam–based architecture practice, Neutelings Riedijk Architects, established in 1992 in collaboration with Michiel Riedijk. Over the past twenty-three years Neutelings Riedijk Architects has established itself internationally as a leading practice, specializing in the design and realization of complex projects for public, commercial and cultural buildings. They have designed and built theatres, concert halls, city halls, museums, libraries, city halls, hotels, university and office buildings. The work of Neutelings Riedijk Architects is often characterised as having a sculptural quality and a playfulness of form and ornament while following a clear rationality in programming and context. Because of the public nature of most of the firm’s work, Willem Jan Neutelings and Michiel Riedijk see this sculptural quality as a way to communicate the building’s role within its urban or social context. Projects like the Museum Aan de Stroom in Antwerp, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum, the Shipping and Transport College in Rotterdam, and the Libraries and Cultural Centres of Arnhem and Amersfoort, have been published in numerous international architectural magazines and have won a variety of awards and nominations.
