Designers and architects can and must play an essential role in the housing assignment process. Join Inger Kammeraat on June 10 at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, as she tackles the housing crisis in the Netherlands explains how spatial designers can contribute to the solution.
Inger Kammeraat has been a driving force of MVRDV’s management team since 2016, helping to streamline office support systems and processes at a critical period in the office’s growth and development. In her current role as Managing Director, Kammeraat forges a crucial link between the board and the office’s studios, as well as the design and support teams, providing a clear overview of the practice to strengthen decision-making, quality, procedures, and office well-being. In addition to working for various international companies prior to joining MVRDV in 2008, Kammeraat also spent seven years in Africa, developing a great affection for the continent and its people. In Kampala, Uganda, she initiated The Design Hub to mentor entrepreneurs and connect them with clients, stakeholders, projects, and funding. Fundamental in all these roles, is Kammeraat’s inherent versatility, as well as her keen ability to connect content, and bring the right people to the table.
