De Meelfabriek: A House of Transition

TEDxLeiden is grounded in De Meelfabriek. We at TEDxLeiden see the Meelfabriek as a House of Transition. A perfect example of a true transition spirit. De Meelfabriek is a unique project that takes our industrial heritage and transforms it into space that is full of urban energy. Peter Zumthor is the architect who's vision is grounded in a clear view on the social experience that De Meelfabriek will nurture in the future.

 

In the video below, both Peter Zumthor (architect) and Henri Lenferink (mayor of Leiden) share their views on the design, potential and history of De Meelfabriek project.
