Dates of visit
29 March–3 April
Purpose of visit
“During these few days, we wish to learn more about the organisation of public access to archival materials and to gather information on storage systems for graphic archives. We will therefore visit the archive of Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Open Maquette Depot at the Van Nelle Factory site, where part of the institute’s collection of architectural models is stored. “We will also investigate educational programmes in the heritage field and visit exhibitions on architecture, urban planning and design. And we will attend the 1:1 Symposium on 2 April as guests of Het Nieuwe Instituut.”
Irina Chepkunova graduated from the Moscow Institute of Architecture with a degree in art history and has worked since 1981 for the Schusev State Museum of Architecture in Moscow, where she is deputy director of research. Alexandra Stepina is an art historian and has worked as a research secretary at the Schusev State Museum of Architecture in Moscow since 2014.
