Global Practices in Architecture Lecture Series

Mieke Bosse
Principal architect, Scala Architecten, Den Haag, Netherlands
Houses in Cities in the Netherlands
Monday, October 11, 6 PM, 100 Rapson Hall
Cass Gilbert Fund Lecture cosponsored by Professor Julia Robinson, School of Architecture, College of Design

Explore how houses and other buildings can connect with each other and the existing fabric, engaging inhabitants to occupy the edges of the urban wall, the street, and public open areas so that a town, city, or suburb is alive.

Bosse has been principal and owner of Scala, with Peter Drijver, since 1989. Scala has become predominantly focused on creating housing that makes human-scale urban patterns. Mieke is an experienced practitioner and teacher and advocates the New Traditionalist approach. As a critic she is knowledgeable about Dutch housing practices in the world context, and appreciates good design in all its forms.
