Dikkie Scipio’s contribution to Rolmodellen & ‘starchitects’ panel discussion
Times change, and so do the role models in architecture. What are the values of contemporary architects, and who do they represent nowadays? Does the principle of a 'starchitect' as a role model still stand, or can inspiration also arise from collective and collaboration? And is there enough diversity in the range of role models in terms of gender, origin and other aspects?
In response to the publication Women in Architecture, nai010 publishers organized a panel discussion with Arcam Architectuurcentrum Amsterdam and Pakhuis de Zwijger.
Dikkie Scipio was part of this debate together with Linda Vlassenrood, Eileen Stornebrink, Peter van Assche, Pınar Balat, Murtada Alkaabi, Erica Smeets-Klokgieters and Jurrian Arnold. The event also had Indira van ‘t Klooster (Arcam Architectuurcentrum Amsterdam) discussing new values, ownership and authorship in architecture.
The event took place last December at Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam. If you missed it, you can watch the discussion here.
