Het Nieuwe Instituut

From its main port in Rotterdam, to its productive hinterlands of greenhouses and farms, the logic and relations that define the physical and social landscape of work and labor in the Netherlands are being redefined by machines, data and interfaces. In this event, Meiny Prins, Susan Schuppli, Stephan Petermann, Víctor Muñoz Sanz, Marina Otero Verzier and Marten Kuijpers will engage in a public conversation on the spatial implications of automation for the built environment. Arjen Oosterman will moderate the evening.

Bringing together a select group of experts, practitioners, academics, and students of disciplines related to the built environment, a bus tour will become partly a leisure activity, and partly a workshop aimed to explore current developments in automation and their impact in planning and architecture. Marten Kuijpers and Víctor Muñoz Sanz will act as tour guides of a journey that will take the group around some of the Automated Landscapes of South Holland, including visits to an automated dairy farm, an automated greenhouse, and to the headquarters of the leading Dutch firms in farming and horticultural automation.
