Alan H Rider Distinguished Lecture
RONALD RIETVELD is founding partner of RAAAF [Rietveld Architecture-Art-Affordances], a studio making site specific work at the crossroads of architecture, philosophy, and art. RAAAF was founded by brothers Ronald, Prix de Rome Architecture laureate, and Erik, a researcher in the fields of philosophy and neuroscience. Every RAAAF project is a build manifesto in itself, synthesizing specifics of context and urgent societal issues through an approach of strategic interventions. RAAAF’s work has been exhibited at the art and architecture biennales of Chicago, Istanbul, and Venice, in 2013 RAAAF earned the title of New Radical and Dutch Architect of the Year, and in 2016 RAAAF has been invited to become members of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts.
