The Exhibition on Coen Beeker ‘Urban Fields’ Continues its Journey! - Be aware: time change!
IHS will host the opening event for the exhibition on the 19th of March, starting at 15:30.
Last year in March we held a symposium on the work of the Dutch urban planner Coen Beeker together with African Studies Centre Leiden. During the symposium we launched the publication The Beeker Method. Planning and Working on the Redevelopment of the African City: Retrospective Glances into the Future (available for download here) featuring contributions of practitioners and scholars from Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Zanzibar and the Netherlands and opened a travelling exhibition providing insights into Beeker’s long involvement as an urban planner in Africa. Since then the exhibition has been presented at the University of Amsterdam and is now set to be opened at the premises of IHS Rotterdam.
Coen Beeker and Antoni Folkers will be present at the exhibition opening event which will also include an presentation of to the book and a Q&A session with Beeker and Folkers.
