Because the Architecture master's programme is part of ArtEZ University of the Arts, it is possible to collaborate very directly with other courses within the institution. One concrete result of that is 'Plein', an annual programme consisting of a wide range of workshops, where possible in cooperation with other courses of the university.
The workshops revolve around a theme related to the design of architecture, but do not necessarily have to involve a design activity. They explore the boundaries of architecture and can also go beyond them.
During Plein 13, the role of utopia in modern times was explored, led by the architect Martine de Wit.
