The Academy
The Acadamy of Architecture Amsterdam offers an interdisciplinary program of masterstudies. Architects, urbanists and landscape architects are trained in constant mutual exchange between their disciplines.

The Workshops
The annual Winter- and Summerworkshops are intensive interdisciplinary events.
International teams of students work on unusual, challenging group assignments.


2009 | Thin City

An investigation on the phenomenon of lightweight and composite structures. Students impregnate their clothes to ‘Frozen textile’ and build a human tower.

2010 | Going Dutch

For ages individuals have created, transformed and maintained the Dutch landscape as the sum of personal dreams. How will students match their dreams with others, how will they match connecting pieces into vibrant structures?

2010 | Transgress

The workshop is meant to defamiliarize the ‘sectoral’ way of understanding the world. Students are expected to violate or trespass some spatial convention anywhere in public space, challenging the common equation of landscape.

2013 | Canal District 2413

A leap into future off 400 years offers us great visionary freedom. This allows us to play with our delicate historical heritage as if it where a ‘Canal District building-kit’.
