Architecture of Appropriation, Het Nieuwe Instituut's long-term research project and upcoming publication on squatting as spatial practice, has been awarded a 2017 Graham Foundation Grant to organisations.
The aim of this collaborative project is to acknowledge the urban and architectural legacy of the squatting movement, to re-examine ideas of vacancy and property, and to propose alternative urban and domestic arrangements to the dominant, market-oriented housing policies. The publication analyzes a series of case studies with reference to architectural drawings, interviews and archival material, building up a record of these struggles, spaces and oral histories for future generations of architects, researchers, policy makers and the general public, both in the Netherlands and abroad.
