A stage for stage fright

  • Chris Burghouts / Master of Architecture / Arnhem

‘In this design of a unique conservatory, the building is situated at a tranquil location on the edge of the tumultuous medieval town of Maastricht. Conservatory students may opt to use the building as a stage. The design is intended to enable interaction with people passing through the adjoining public space which, though distinct, meanders through the conservatory.


Students are at home here. In the first academic year, students live in the conservatory. Between their study lives, rehearsals and performances, students can practice by surprising a passer-by or a fellow student with a spontaneous performance.’


The graduation exhibition of the Architecture Master’s programme takes place in October/November.
