Current Work: Willem Jan Neutelings, Neutelings Riedijk Architects

Recorded November 4, 2013

In November 2013, Dutch architect Willem Jan Neutelings gave a Current Work lecture at the Great Hall of The Cooper Union in which he discussed his firm’s practice and its main desire to create and give identity to a community through architecture, or in his words, “to create a monumentality that can become a part of a community.” The video here presents highlights of that lecture, including the architect’s brief interpretation of postmodernism in architecture, and three projects that encapsulate the firm’s work with high profile public buildings—the Central Tax Office in Apeldoorn, The City Museum of Antwerp, and the Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum.

The Architectural League’s Current Work series presents the work of significant international figures, who powerfully influence contemporary architectural practice and shape the future of the built environment.
