What makes INDESEM (INternational DEsign SEMinar) special is the cooperation between students of different nationalities and renowned architects and theorists. INDESEM was organized for the 1st time in 1962 by a group of students (Wiek Röling among others) directly connected to Stylos.
In 1986 the workshop was reinitiated by Herman Hertzberger and an independent group of students. Since then it has been held frequently (annually or bi-annually). Each edition of INDESEM is guided by a particular theme, which is intensively explored during a week-long workshop.
The final results of the workshop, as well as the content of lectures and debates will contribute towards a publication. More than just a memorabilia for participants, this book is a focused effort to contribute to the architectural debate.
