City of Permanent Temporality. Incomplete and Unfinished. A lecture by Kristian Koreman

Lecture Cycle: Rethinking Heritage. The Netherlands Experience
4 November 2018


The lecture cycle Rethinking Heritage. The Netherlands Experience continues with a lecture by Kristian Koreman, co-founder of the ZUS [Zones Urbaines Sensibles] architectural bureau.

From a period of severe crisis and extreme pride, a unique piece of city has emerged in Rotterdam. Using unconventional strategies and radical forms of city making, ZUS has forged new links between architecture, economy, politics, and public space.

City of Permanent Temporality is a theory of a city that is in continuous transformation, where bricks and mortar, on the one side, and people, on the other, continue to adapt to each other, without ever being complete. The withdrawal of governments and turbulent market forces calls for new methods of planning and design.


Kristian Koreman founded ZUS [Zones Urbaines Sensibles] in partnership with Elma van Boxel. Since 2001, ZUS practices architecture, urban planning, and landscape design, pushing the boundaries between these different domains.

As ZUS founders and leaders van Boxel and Koreman regularly teach and lecture at universities worldwide. In 2012 they curated for the International Architecture Biennial Rotterdam and were first lab team members at the BMW Guggenheim Lab, New York. Van Boxel and Koreman are visiting professors at the Syracuse University School of Architecture, New York.

Boxel and Koreman’s unsolicited and interdisciplinary work led them to winning the 2007 Maaskant Prize for Young Architects. In 2012 ZUS was named Architect of the Year and received the Urban Intervention Award Berlin. In 2016 the duo became finalists of the European Prize for Public Space, while in 2017 ZUS was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award.



Free admission with advance registration.

The lecture will be held in English with interpreting into Russian.
