Humpday has it all: from lectures and a keynotespeaker to a presentation and a city escape. And have you ever tried to speak Dutch? It's tough to learn, but take a change in only 45 minutes! Maybe you can order your dinner or drinks in Dutch when we close the day in the city centre of Arnhem.

Designing a Self-Sufficient Tiny House

Lecture with Jonathan Bax, Project leader of Building Physics at Peutz and founder of JonaBouw Tiny House Design

We will explore how we can create smart designs that are not only self-sufficient and sustainable, but also in harmony with nature and our needs as individuals. By combining innovative technologies with eco-friendly materials, one can create a home that minimizes environmental impact while maximizing comfort and functionality.

Constructing Japan

Keynote Speakers: Madoka Aihara en Bas Spaanderman

We are YUUA, an architectural firm consisting of Madoka Aihara & Bas Spaanderman based in Tokyo, Japan. For us, architecture is a craft; we create a unique habitat for every assignment. The relationship between people, light, nature and materiality is the central story of our work. Tradition, local culture and aesthetics are our inspiration for future architecture. We give a lecture on how Japanese architecture, urban planning and infrastructure have developed over the past 100 years, in order to gain insight into a completely different culture, tradition and society from the eye of an architect.
