Features and seminars

BOOKSHOP by Boekenhuis Theoria

Bookstore Theoria is an independent bookshop and does its best to be a little different by offering a wide range of well-known and lesser-known titles. You can find a wide range of literature but equally gems of children's and youth books. 

EXHIBIT by MaterialDistrict

At the "Super Skins" exhibition, specially curated for ARCHITECT@WORK, MaterialDistrict will show a wide range of over 120 high-quality, innovative and sustainable material samples. Whether it is the façade of buildings or the finish of interior objects, surface designs can turn good design into something fantastic. They can protect the underlying materials, purify the air, or simply 'finish' the space with their looks.


Specially for ARCHITECT@WORK, DAPh creates a new collection fitting the theme of 'Super Skin'.

ART by Jochem Esser

Jochem Esser is a visual artist fascinated by the relationship between humans and technology, exploring connections between physical stimuli, objects and mental phenomena. He combines contrasting techniques from different historical periods to blur the line between technology and artefact. His imagery draws inspiration from science fiction, occultism and data visualisation.


Groups of four architects and a concrete technologist sat together and explored innovative ways to apply concrete. Not in the context of a concrete project, but completely free of any obstacles. What does the designer dream of, what does the architect want to try out together with the concrete expert, how do we make precast concrete "future proof".
