Henri Snel was introducing the international workshop about: ‘400 one minutes behind the façade’ at the museum Willet-Holthuysen in Amsterdam. The occasion is the 400th anniversary of the canal houses. A upcoming study on 400 canal houses by means of 400 one minute movies about the tactile qualities of living, working and staying on canal houses from an architectural perception.
The workshop will have an international flavour with students from different countries and cultures. The international character is an opportunity in a short time to change the image on canal houses and give them another dimension in only 60 seconds.
