'Architecture in Exile', conversation Sharon Oldenkotte-Vrolijk of BPD, Director of Art & Culture and Joseph Sassoon Semah.
The lecture was preceded by the opening of the exhibition.
The architectural models Joseph Sassoon Semah creates, are all related to memories of places and buildings that no longer exist. A special building like the former orphanage still exists, but has a different use nowadays. Just like Sassoon Semah's buildings, the original use lives on in the memories of those who lived and worked there.
