Budget: € 1.100.000

The Creative Industries Fund NL uses the Architecture Grant Programme to support projects that contribute to promoting the quality and development of contemporary Dutch architecture. There are four application rounds a year for this grant programme. The annual budget is equally distributed across the rounds.
The Architecture Grant Programme aims to support projects. The majority of applications originate from architects, urban designers, town and country planners, researchers, publishers and other professionals active in the fields of architecture, urban design as well as interior, garden and landscape design. In addition to these designers and spatial professionals, the programme is also open to other parties such as architectural and debating centres and institutions.

You need to be registered as a company with the Chamber of Commerce (Kamer van Koophandel or its foreign equivalent) when you receive the grant.
Applications may be submitted for project grants concerning research, design research, projects aimed at national or international knowledge exchange and projects that stimulate public interest in the field including, for instance, expert meetings, experiments, competitions and audiovisual productions. Activities and publications aimed at presentation, analysis and reflection are also eligible.

The Grant Programme for Architecture also has a starting grant that can be applied for (max. €7,500) to study a project’s options. Read more about starting grants here.

Festivals
Festivals and cultural organizations can turn to the Festivals Grant Programme for the preparation, structuring and implementation of festivals in the field of architecture.

Architecture Biennale: Cosmogonia Mundi

MAKE MOVE THINK, 2018
Cosmogonia Mundi reflects on the possible futures of the City of Venice and the Port of Marghera in the form of live dance, using Northscapes Collective’s installation The Port and the Fall of Icarus on the shore of the laguna as a backdrop, and a film documentary in the main exhibition of the Venice Pavilion. In this project, which is part of a larger research programme, MAKE MOVE THINK explores the dialogue between individualism and collectivism in contemporary urban culture. Performing Arts and Architecture meld to create a moment where Dance is not merely performance and Architecture is not permanence.

Architecture Biennale: Architecture in the Netherlands - Yearbook

nai010 uitgevers (Lara Schrijver, Kirsten Hannema, Robert-Jan de Kort, Reinier de Graaf), 2018
Every year nai010 publishers produces a new edition of the Architecture in the Netherlands Yearbook with an overview of 30 realized constructions, which additionally describes the most important developments and trends that influence the production and design of Dutch architecture. This year the presentation of the yearbook takes place simultaneously with the Flemish yearbook by the Flanders Architecture Institute, on the border between the Belgian and Dutch pavilions as a symbol of the dialogue between the two neighbouring countries. The discussion partners explore the various interpretations of the professional field in Belgium and the Netherlands, with particular attention paid to new forms of housing, circular design, the rediscovery of rural areas and the role of private commissioning of housing.

Architecture Biennale: Free Market

Jeffrey Bolhuis (AP+E) met Jo Anne Butler (Superfolk), Miriam Delaney (DIT), Tara Kennedy (Culturstruction), Orla Murphy (Custom) & Laurence Lord (AP+E), 2018
With the Free Market project, co-curator of the Irish pavilion Jeffrey Bolhuis explores the role of marketplaces in Irish villages. These marketplaces were once the social and economic centres of the villages and their wider surroundings, but have now largely lost their original function. Free Market focuses on the potential of these places, with the aim of encouraging social cohesion and sustainable economy in the villages and region. As a result, this research also has significant relevance for regional development in the Netherlands and Europe. The Free Market exhibition marks the starting point for a travelling exhibition and a longer-running project that is part of the international debate about the future of rural villages.

Architecture Biennale: The Port and the Fall of Icarus

The Northscapes Collective (Hamed Khosravi, Taneha K. Bacchin en Filippo laFleur), 2017
The Northscapes' proposal would take the discovered manuscript titled “The Port and the Fall of Icarus” as the point of departure to search for possible scenarios for the future of the Rotterdam Harbour. An installation would set the ground for series of events and discussions around the topic of a smart and intelligent port and its relation to the vision of the Rotterdam Harbour, the city and its inhabitants. Such events will be organized throughout the period of the biennale in collaboration with the academic institutions.

Architecture Biennale: The Institute of Patent Infringement

Jane Chew en Matthew Stewart, 2017
The satirical Institute of Patent Infringement (IoPI) aims to dissect the dubious world of intellectual property rights that allows ‘Big Tech’ a monopoly on ideas concerning automation. Taking Amazon as a leading example, IoPI will detail and organise the thousands of patents they’ve filed since 2010, ranging in scale from the body to the 1km2 fulfilment centre. IoPI will initiate an open call to subvert these patents exhibiting the results as part of the Dutch Pavillion’s theme, WORK, BODY, LEISURE.
