Studio Visits is a series of evenings dedicated to contemporary architectural practice and its challenges and possibilities. PosadMaxwan invites professionals, students and the broader public to cross the threshold, take a peek into the architects’ workplace, and join the conversation.

The Studio Visits have space for a limited number of participants, while demand is great. If, after registering, you are unable to attend, please inform us as soon as possible do that someone else can attend.
Posad and Maxwan have recently joined forces to establish an urban practice that focuses on strategy, design and execution. The international team at PosadMaxwan — comprising urban planners, researchers and landscape architects and led by partners Han Dijk, Rients Dijkstra and Emile Revier — deals on a daily basis with complex challenges in cities around issues including climate, mobility, health and inclusivity.
During the Studio Visit, with a view of the skyline of The Hague, the partners and staff will share their experiences of merging the two offices. They will also touch upon the birth of Generation.Energy — which literally and figuratively addresses the energy transition — the role of research in their projects, making mistakes, and their position on urban area development today.
Hosted and curated by an architectural studio in collaboration with Het Nieuwe Instituut, each evening will be organized around a tour, a presentation, an open conversation and a celebration. The gathering will serve as a catalyst for debate and architectural discourse; for strategizing urban policies and actions; for collaboration, forms of solidarity, and friendship as well as competition; and for - why not? - architectural gossip. Studio Visits is also a space in which to reformulate the social position of the architect in a fundamentally changed field of influence, by collectively exploring possible roles and responsibilities.
Previous Studio Visits were hosted by studios with diverse spatial configurations, forms of practice and portfolios: Powerhouse Company, Casanova+Hernandez, Lilith Ronner van Hooijdonk, LOLA Landscape Architects, MVRDV, Rotterdam’s Urban Development Team, Shift architecture urbanism and Team Paul de Vroom + Sputnik, and UNStudio.
