Episode Summary

VenhoevenCS is an ambitious and innovative design studio that focuses on sustainable architecture, urban development, and infrastructure. For VenhoevenCS, a competent design is an inspiring environment in which different groups of people can co-exist in a limited space. Like the Sportplaza Mercator, built in the middle a multicultural neighbourhood in Amsterdam, that is home to people from 129 different countries. The building was designed as a city – a miniature society – inside a cave, covered with plants. Ton Venhoeven, in his role as advisor to the Dutch government, deals with complex issues of infrastructure. Two key elements in his design philosophy are the stimulation of social interaction and the promotion of sustainable living, which he addresses by limiting automobile traffic, and building more densely. His research focuses in particular on designing self-supporting cities, and on the development of micro networks that enable recycling and synergy.
