In this episode, I spoke to Marly Weeman, a specialist in Dutch Art, Architecture, and Social Discourse.
This episode is really special to me because it was actually recorded in Rotterdam inside a historic architectural landmark. I met Marly at the Kiefhoek Social Housing estate as she gave us a guided tour around one of the most important social housing projects in modernist architecture history. It was designed by the renowned architect JJP Oud, who is considered to be one of the Big 4.
During our tour, I was mesmerised by Marly’s passion, knowledge, and wonderment for the project that it inspired me to approach her for a podcast episode.
And she said yes! But not just that. She got special permission for us to film the episode inside one of the Iconic Houses. It was a day I will never forget and I learnt so much about modernist history!
