Michiel Huijben is currently our guest in residency at HET WILDE WETEN. Michiel will stay until end of November and has a grant by the Mondriaan Fonds.
Michiel Huijben reads, writes and speaks about architecture. Perhaps his talks are a way for him to intervene in the (seemingly) rigid and unchangeable architecture of his immediate environment. During his stay at Het Wilde Weten, Michiel will be working on a presentation about the life and work of a Dutch outsider architect whose (mostly unbuilt) designs from the 1960s to the late ‘90s take a peculiar stance on themes such as immigration, sustainability, terrorism and real estate.
Michiel studied at the St. Joost academy in Breda and the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam, where he finished in 2008. In 2013, he did a short track residency at De Ateliers in Amsterdam, followed by an MA in architectural history & theory at the Cass, London. Shortly afterward, he started the publishing project Flat i. (welcometoflat-i.net).
In the past couple of years his talks have been presented at Enough Room for Space HQ (Brussels), Matt’s Gallery (London), min- (Rotterdam), Extracity (Antwerp) and de Fabriek (Eindhoven), among other places. He lives and works in Brussels and Rotterdam.
