Ronald Rietveld on VACANT NL

4 November 2011
Ronald Rietveld spoke about VACANT.NL which tries to change the mindset about vacancy involving a social problem and to put the issue on the political agenda.

In 2011 Rietveld Landscape took home the Dutch Design Award in the category Spatial design for the best interior: VACANT NL, where architecture meets Ideas.

25% of the buildings in the Netherlands are vacant, while students cannot find accommodation in the cities. Vacant NL tries to change the mindset involving a social problem and to put the issue on the political agenda.

Ronald Rietveld gave this public talk in The Timmerfabriek within the programme of The Great Indoors Award 2011: In Between.
