Town Observation Practice in the Netherlands09.06.2015

In the beginning of May, the second year students of Applied Architecture had a trip to the Netherlands in the framework of the town observation practice of the 4th semester. The students and their supervisors visited Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht.

The program focused on modern architecture and on the Dutch towns in general. One of the most impressive experiences was to see the house of the Dutch architect and furniture designer Gerrit Rietveld in Utrecht. Next to Amsterdam, Rotterdam also surprised positively, especially with the building on the central square of the city, which hosts both a marketplace and apartments and is shaped like a horseshoe. Another special sight was a bunker from the II World War – a small thick-walled concrete building that had been cut in half and opened to the visitors.

The town observation practice week was very intensive and for many students, it was an eye-opening experience of modern architecture.
