Open Building: A Future Perspective on Habraken’s Heritage

Marc Koehler’s term as the Architect in Residence at the Architectuur Centrum Amsterdam is drawing to a close in December, concluding a period of three months of studying new initiatives according to the principles of John Habraken’s Open Building.

Architect and academic Habraken composed the first guidelines of Open Building in the sixties: he described ways to compose buildings with a multipurpose structure and flexible infill, to address the different wishes and needs of inhabitants.

As co-initiator of a new online platform featuring current developments in Open Building - developers, architects, and inhabitants - Marc will present an overview of new initiatives and projects. He will elaborate on three themes: Open Architecture, Open Development, and Open Systems, and connect the principles of Open Building to new ways to incorporate circularity, sustainability and the influence of individuals and communities into residential projects.
