Dutch architect Arie van der Neut will give a free public talk in Melbourne entitled ‘For the Time Being: Non-permanent structures – Temporary Buildings Within the City’.

Van der Neut is a director of HDVN Architecten, a Dutch practice that was named Architect of the Year 2010 in the Netherlands. The practice is driven by a strong social and sustainability agenda, exploring prefabricated design to create sustainable infrastructure for schools, nursing homes and student housing. The practice has completed a number of recent projects with design-led architecture of a permanent quality and performance, that also allow for future relocation.

HVDN creates sustainable buildings with a strong character: inspiring, self conscious and social. Their buildings have the courage to take their place, yet also aim to advance social development. With a distinctive architecture that gives space interaction between people and between man and the environment, HVDN wants to contribute to the quality of life in the city.
