Presentation Floris Alkemade – Metamorphosis

Thijs Pepping
November 25, 2022

At our Executive Summit in Dublin 12 thought leaders shared their perspectives on the theme of Metamorphosis*. We recorded the best sessions to share with you. This week it’s Floris Alkemade story: Alkemade worked for years as an architect for the architectural firm of Rem Koolhaas. He later started his own agency. For many years, Floris was the Dutch Chief Government Architect who provided the government with solicited and unsolicited advice.

Under the title “Metamorphosis” we will hear how he as an architect views social issues and how transformations can be made possible. For this he draws, among other things, from his book “The Future of the Netherlands”.

*About the theme ‘Metamorphosis’For many of us, life seems to have been on hold for nearly two years. The pandemic has forced organizations to rethink every aspect of their business, embracing a new level of creativity to adapt to this new world.

With this, we should not be surprised that some organizations will emerge from this crisis stronger, more agile, more creative, and more resilient than ever before. It is similar to the metamorphosis of a caterpillar transforming into a fluttering butterfly: change can bring a beautiful, new beginning.

What lessons has the crisis taught us?

What are the prerequisites for success in the post-pandemic era?

How is technology enabling this reinvention?
