Three Nations - Emerging Architects event photos

3 Nations - Emerging Architects event with Buro Happold London, 11 November 2011,

The Cultural department of this embassy has a remit to facilitate relations between Dutch and UK architects and UK based organisations interested in Dutch architecture. We feel we have been successful when an introduction leads to further bilateral contact or even bilateral collaborations or a UK commission for a Dutch architect.
Working with Buro Happold was a natural next step after Buro Happold set up an office in The Hague and spoke to us about their interest in connecting with emerging architects. The result was an event with emerging architects and speakers from the Netherlands, Scotland and England.

The 3 Nations one day seminar was set up as a series of presentations with plenty of space for debate. Alongside the particpants were given the opportunity to present their work to each other (Buro Happold had provided an exhibition with information submitted by the participants), and to network.
The day was very successful! We had 40 participants from 3 the nations, lively Q&A's after the presentations and plenty of networking during the coffee breaks, lunch and dinner. The speakers were open, inclusive and engaging. The feedback was very positive, people really understood the intention of the event and expressed their appreciation for the organisation.

Certainly worth repeating annually or bi-annually!
