The HAN Institute of Built Environment offers the exchange course Dutch Architecture and ‘how it finds its way into the World’ in a unique collaboration with ArtEZ Institute of the Arts.

You will learn about the history of Dutch Architecture and how it influences the rest of the world. Visit the highlights of modern Dutch Architecture and gain hands-on, inside-out experience on the spot. Discover design tools and learn how to use them. And apply your new skills and knowledge in your own design project.

Students will attend guest lectures by well-known Dutch architects who will talk about their projects and the stories behind them. They will also develop architectural skills, such as modelling, sketching and writing, work on their own designs and learn to use specific software and give presentations.
