The NAi Effect
Creating Achitecture Culture
In The NAi Effect, Sergio Figueiredo elegantly elucidates the social and cultural aims of architecture museums – arguably the most significant institutions in creating architecture culture as well as directing architectural discourse and practice. By providing a critical survey of the history and the legacy of the Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAi), Figueiredo provides insights to how cultural policy works in practice and how specific national cultural institutions relate to a fast changing global context. This book is a probing study of one of the most important architectural institutions in the world as well as a critical analysis of a fundamental instrument for architecture’s advancement and dissemination since their inception in the early nineteenth century.
