Are people welcome in the workplaces of the future? Will site value soon be determined by global data flows? What role does the government still have in this? The 'Architecture of Labour' is a program of six public debates on the spatial dimension of work and its transition toward new modes of production. This guest program runs between March and December 2019, and is developed in collaboration with Deltametropolis Association and Spontaneous City International.

Automation, digitalisation and new productive landscapes

The first debate will be with Jeanet van Antwerpen, CEO Schiphol Area Development Company and Marten Kuijpers, from the Research and Development department at Het Nieuwe Instituut. 

Automated Landscapes

Marten Kuijpers is one of leads of the Automated Landscapes research. Based on the premise that automation disrupts not only labour markets but also the configuration and design of entire territories, ‘Automated Landscapes’ seeks to document and reflect upon the emerging—and anonymous—architectures and landscapes of fully-automated, non-human work. The project follows an ongoing commitment of Het Nieuwe Instituut to address the implications of automation and artificial intelligence for architecture, design and digital culture.
