Coffee with an architect. Reinier de Graaf interview
Reinier de Graaf will talk about his new book “Four Walls and a Roof” at the festival. The book combines a collection of papers reflecting the thoughts of Reinier de Graaf on the profession of an architect in the 21st century and his own, sometimes tragicomic experience in it.
Reinier says that in his profession, an architect is not an artist who takes his cues fr om inspiration. He is the point wh ere many external forces interact, and he seeks to be a critical lens of these forces: investors, politicians, advisors. How can you build cities amid the constant conflict of interests?
