During this edition of The Living Archive, MVRDV founding partner Nathalie de Vries presents a live unboxing and Associate Professor Janina Gosseye discusses the ways in which oral histories can add otherwise forgotten stories to an archive. Joining them are the curators of MVRDVHNI, the exhibition currently on show at Het Nieuwe Instituut, as we delve deeper into the role oral histories can play in the construction of archives.

18:30 – 19:30

CANCELLED. In a talk show setting at Het Nieuwe Instituut, MVRDV founding partners Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries talk about how they realised the Depot. We also hear about the latest developments at their office, the studio's archive at Het Nieuwe Instituut, the exhibition MVRDVHNI and more. 


CANCELLED. Studio Visits is a series of evenings dedicated to contemporary architectural practice, its challenges and possibilities. After standing still for over a year, were making a big splash with a Studio Visit+ at none other than MVRDV, for Members only! 


Het Nieuwe Instituut is excited to invite you to take a look at MVRDVHNI: The Living Archive of a Studio – as well as all the other exhibitions at the institute – on Saturday 6 November. Between 10am and 8pm, access to all the museum galleries is free. You can enjoy special guided tours of Het Nieuwe Instituut’s archive, fittingly themed sets from DJ architects and delicious snacks and drinks from Het Nieuwe CafĂ©’s own Team Coco, as well as the best view in town of the Depot! Surprise performances will take place throughout the day.


In this run-up to the exhibition MVRDVHNI The Living Archive of a Studio, team members of Het Nieuwe Instituut will talk to MVRDV’s Sanne van der Burgh and Leo Stuckardt about the concept and design of the exhibition opening autumn 2021 at Het Nieuwe Instituut. This is followed by an oral history on the Lloyd Hotel as a glimpse of the exhibition's content.
