Through the initiative and support of Director Pat Scanlon, the GEORGE H. SCANLON FOUNDATION has generously funded an annual George H. Scanlon Foundation Lecture since 1998. The George H. Scanlon Foundation Lecture REDUX.5 celebrates this enduring and successful 19-year lecture series by featuring its 2005 lecturer, MICHIEL RIEDIJK, who will present the work of Neutelings Riedijk Architects.
Michiel Riedijk (1964) studied architecture at the Technical University in Delft, the Netherlands, where he graduated with a Master in Architecture in 1989. In 1992, he established the Rotterdam-based office Neutelings Riedijk Architects with Willem Jan Neutelings. Since 2007, Michiel Riedijk is also Professor of Public Building at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at the Technical University Delft. Michiel Riedijk lectures regularly at universities, cultural institutions, and symposia worldwide. His theories and writings on architecture have gained international recognition from fellow architects and scholars. Over the past twenty-four years Neutelings Riedijk Architects has established itself as a leading practice specializing in the design and realization of complex projects for public, commercial, and cultural buildings. Some exemplar works are the MAS Museum in Antwerp, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum, and the Culture House ‘Rozet’ in Arnhem. The work of Neutelings Riedijk Architects has received worldwide appreciation through numerous publications, international awards, and exhibitions around the world. Currently the office is working on projects such as the Dutch Natural History Museum ‘Naturalis’ in Leiden, the ZIL Art Towers in Moscow, and a new office building for the Flemish Government in Brussels. – Neutelings Riedijk Architects
