His lecture at the Academy of Architecture will be about Slow Architecture

Food has gone through a development of becoming easier and quicker to consume, but we have also gained the knowledge that what we call Fast Food is perhaps not the future. Can we do this for the process of intervening in the built environment; the making Architecture?
Keywords are Careful, Pro-ecology, pro-people, pro-local, up-cycling
While giving some background and context, the lecture will provide insight in two projects.
The first one is Band-i-Amir National Park in the central highlands of Afghanistan at 3000m.altitude. This project is in Bamyan province where Prof. Feenstra and his Afghan team worked between 2006-2011 on a zoning plan, an interpretation center cum community center.
The lecture will also show the painstakingly difficult work of community based process of re-building the local bazaar, which was left in ruins by the wars that swept through the area.
This will be followed by a project, presently under construction, in the Himalayas at 3800 m.altitude. Prof. Feenstra and his Nepali team have been working since 2016 on this project which addresses the increasing waste. A vision document, designs for an interpretation center, a workshop and some facilities are being created to raise awareness and process
the local waste. The lecture will highlight the important role of the Sherpa community. The project is located within Sagarmatha National Park. Sagarmatha is the Nepalese name for Mt.Everest.
