Please join us for an exciting I&D session with Anne Feikje Weidema who will share with us her research on elderly housing in the Netherlands. This session should constitute an interesting case study for professionals looking at European case studies in PRS, Housing Communities and Care Architecture.
Anne Feikje leads Communications for PLP Architecture, is involved in Business Development endeavours and directs the Research Focus Group on Housing for the Elderly as part of the studio’s Research Group. She undertook a research case study on Elderly Care Establishments in the Netherlands, showing the elements of architecture and design, called: ‘In Beeld; ouderenzorg instellingen in Nederland anno 2013’. The research serves as a tool for architects, care managers, philosophers, real estate developers and others to rethink and remake the living conditions of elderly in the future – in search for an integral solution.
Anne Feikje achieved her Masters in Political Science at the University of Amsterdam and completed her studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven on the topic of care (architecture). In 2011 she undertook a research traineeship with Rem Koolhaas’ Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) where she became acquainted with the process of architectural design and the relationship between surroundings and health. Before joining PLP Architecture, Anne Feikje was working for De Boer & Wang Studio, a Shanghai based design and strategic brand consultancy agency.
Anne Feikje has given various lectures on the topic Elderly housing, Design and Well being, in the Netherlands, UK, China and South Korea. Together with Danielle Arets she wrote the article ‘Cure with Care; plea for a more sensory architecture’.
This event is Open to All.
