Drafting futures, remembering a building explores, connects and recalls the many lives of one building in Amsterdam Nieuw-West over the span of more than sixty years. From when it was first built as ‘CSG Pascal’, a hypermodern school building; through its near demise when it was reformed as ‘Calvijn College’;  then, its designation as a refugee shelter; and to its current, temporary status as a creative ‘hub’, known as ‘Broedplaats Lely’ and home to de Appel. Plans for the future are constantly made and unmade – what will this place become? How does this building help to understand the ideologies behind city planning, segregation and gentrification? How does this building reveal the different guises of the ‘politics of forgetting' and how to work against them?

Schetsen voor de toekomst, herinneringen aan een gebouw verkent, verbindt en herinnert de vele levens van één gebouw in Amsterdam Nieuw-West over een periode van meer dan zestig jaar: vanaf de bouw van het hypermoderne ‘CSG Pascal’; tot de bijna-ondergang van het ‘Calvijn College’; vervolgens werd het aangewezen als vluchtelingenopvang, en tot slot de huidige, tijdelijke status als ‘Broedplaats Lely’ (thuisbasis van de Appel). Plannen voor de toekomst veranderen voortdurend – wat zal er gebeuren met deze plek? Hoe helpt dit gebouw de ideologische orkestraties van stadsplanning, segregatie en gentrificatie te begrijpen? Hoe onthult dit gebouw de verschillende gedaantes van de ‘politiek van het vergeten’ en hoe deze tegen te werken?
