Lecture in Paris

Last Tuesday, ELA organized a meeting for the AFDU (Association Française du Développement Urbain) in Paris. The meeting was held in Hôtel d'Avaray, the sumptuous residence of the Dutch ambassador in France built in 1780. After three introduction speeches by Ambassador Ed Kronenburg, the president of the AFDU, and the general secretary, Lamers gave a presentation about contemporary architecture in the Dutch metropolitan area of the Randstad.  At the end of this month, 67 members of the AFDU will take part in a four-day study trip to the Netherlands, organised by ELA together with Terra Nobilis from Strasbourg.
