In December 2019 Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Creative Industries Fund NL selected three design teams from their Open Call for the public parallel programme of the Dutch pavilion during the 17th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia (29 August to 29 November 2020). These Open Calls promote and contribute to knowledge and the development of research in the fields of architecture and urbanism.
