Add to my calendar

Architect Machiel Spaan discusses his new book, The Wandering Maker. Spurred by observation, the Wandering Maker discovers the value of street, building, house, and detail. He unravels constructions, cleans up, repairs, transforms, and attempts to work with materials in a sustainable way.

Machiel Spaan is co-founder of the Amsterdam firm M3H Architecten. He has taught architecture for more than 20 years. In 2016 his apartment building De Smaragd won Amsterdam’s prestigious Zuiderkerk Prize.

This program is brought to you by SFPL's General Collections & Humanities Center in partnership with SFPL's Art, Music & Recreation Center.

This is a Reading, Writing & Poetry program from SFPL. We love reading/sharing/creating words.
