Private Architecture Tour of Utrecht Campus

Utrecht

Description


This tour showcases some of the most iconic buildings by world renowned Dutch architects. All of them were built as part of the University campus, close to the city centre of Utrecht

The Uithof is a campus area of the Utrecht University, the largest university in The Netherlands, and it has undergone large scale expansion in recent years according to a new masterplan by OMA / Rem Koolhaas. The area

now effectively functions as a museum for modern Dutch architecture. Together with an expert architect guide, you will discover a broad pallet of Dutch architecture, ranging from 1960's brutalist concrete structures to highlights of contemporary Dutch projects.

Guide: a professional architecture guide with an in-depth knowledge of all the projects, history and development of the area.
