On 30 June, the second expert meeting of the Albany exchange Neerbosch | a x n 2022-project will take place online. Everyone who is interested in the history of Neerbosch (Nijmegen) and Albany or are heritage enthusiasts are invited to join!

During this online event, two teams of experts will examine the cases Van Ostrande Radliff House in Albany and Kinderdorp Neerbosch in Nijmegen from the angle of adaptive re-use. We’ll focus on  how to implement new functions in old buildings, reconciling the conservation of specific heritage values with forms of management able to guarantee economic sustainability.

The Van Ostrande Radliff House is the oldest Dutch house of Albany. Kinderdorp Neerbosch is just outside of Nijmegen and was one of the largest children’s orphanage and youth care villages in The Netherlands. Both heritage sites are under threat from urban developments.

This public forum will present the findings of this exchange meeting and aims to:

  • Reflect on both case studies from an international and comparative perspective;
  • Provide several ideas and solutions for sustaining their existence and vitality;
  • Help to improve the plans for the urban redevelopment of both areas in Albany and Nijmegen.

We invite you all to listen to the presentations and to take part in the subsequent discussions.

The expert meeting Albany exchange Neerbosch a x n 2022 is organized by the International Heritage Cooperation programme of the Cultural Heritage Agency of The Netherlands together with Historic Albany Foundation and Van ’t Lindenhout Museum of Nijmegen.
