In 2006 Bureau Europa was founded as NAI Maastricht, a satellite venue of the former Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAI) in Rotterdam. Since 2013, the organisation operates independently as Bureau Europa, platform for architecture and design.


As a presentation platform and network organisation, Bureau Europa presents exhibitions, lectures, workshops, city tours, and other discourse-based activities in the field of architecture, urbanism, and design. From a societal perspective, Bureau Europa aims to advance knowledge production and talent development and operate within the realm of cultural significance. We articulate these aims in cultural projects at our institute and within the public domain. Bureau Europa’s focus is primarily on the common social agenda of Europe and the Maas-Rhine Euroregion.


Bureau Europa’s programme seeks to activate and extend analysis about the designed environment, and we initiate collaborations and projects to convey narratives about our cities and surroundings. The topics we address include the structure of information, interiority and the city, food production, security and dissemination, the future of work, the history and migration of crafts (in relation to resource scarcity and technological acceleration), and new economies and old borders, to name but a few.
