Pleased to meet you

On Monday 21 September 2020, the Architecture in the Netherlands Yearbook 2019/2020 will be launched in Rotterdam by its editors Kirsten Hannema, Teun van den Ende and Arna Mačkić. The Yearbook is the international calling card for Dutch architecture. In addition to the essay by guest author Adeola Enigbogkan and for its theme ‘Pleased to meet you’, the three-person editorial team has considered the past year’s most important developments in the Netherlands and selected the most notable projects. The selection includes the renovation of the Timmerfabriek, at the Muziekgieterij and Bureau Europa, by Maurer United Architects.
