2 June 2020: Expert Meeting 1 - Sustainable Conservation of Modernist Houses
The stripes say it all - they represent rising average global temperatures from 1850 to 2018 (using data from the UK Met Office). So we look at how to change our environmental stripes as Modern house owners and curators. Sustainable conservation, often relying on tailor-made technical solutions to maintain architectural integrity while saving energy, can prepare a building for the future. So where to start?

2 June 2020: Expert Meeting 2 - Modern Heritage Homes after 1965
Newer (post-1965) examples of architectural heritage can be particularly vulnerable, as they usually lack official protection – or even recognition. Luckily, there is a growing consensus that this more recent heritage is worth preserving. We look at current developments in young heritage.

4 June 2020: Conference theme - Pioneers of the Dutch Modern House
We explore 20th-century Dutch architecture from the Amsterdam School to Post-Modernism, visiting wonderful homes by Rietveld,  J.J.P. Oud,  Brinkman & Van der Vlugt and plenty of others, in Utrecht, Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Several of these sites are examples of social housing – an area in which the Netherlands is particularly rich.

5 June 2020: Conference theme - Saving Icons at Risk
Much recent heritage remains unprotected – and therefore vulnerable. Icons at Risk is a research project that aims to help protect and support threatened 20th-century houses. At the conference, we will highlight some of the homes currently under threat, and learn from success stories such as Villa Cavrois (from condemned building to 100,000 annual visitors).

Welcome Casa Weeber on CuraƧao!
Dutch architect Carel Weeber developed his family home on the Caribbean island Curaçao according the building principles of traditional plantation houses: capturing maximum incoming wind and a minimum of direct sunlight. Consequently, air conditioning is not needed. A huge rainwater reservoir, indoor swimming pool and solar boiler also contribute to the eco-friendliness of the design. This year, the house is available as a holiday rental for the first time.

Venturo House Extends Space-Age Utopia
The Finnish Exhibition Centre WeeGee, in Espoo near Helsinki, manages the Futuro house (1968). Now, it has acquired the Venturo house by the same architect, Matti Suuronen, from a private owner. Designed in 1971, the Venturo will be taken for refurbishment this autumn and open to the public in summer 2021 at WeeGee. The Venturo house, also called CF-45, will join the Futuro (no. 001) that WeeGee first exhibited in 2012.
