NAiM / Bureau Europa (former Netherlands Architecture Institute Maastricht) is the new architecture museum of the Euroregion Meuse-Rhine. It is housed in the Wiebengahal on Avenue Ceramique, adjacent to the Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht. It’s aim is to act as a focus for a public discourse on the past, present and future of the designed environment in the Euroregion Meuse-Rhine. It will host temporary shows on current developments in the fields of architecture, urban planning and design in the surrounding "Euregio" (the three-nation-region Maastricht/Aachen/Liège). It also fulfills a platform function in the area of architecture and design by organizing lectures and debates. Previously part of the Société Céramique factory, the space has a rich history and, as an early example of the New Architecture (Nieuwe Bouwen) style, is also interesting from the standpoint of the history of architecture. NAiM / Bureau Europa is part of the Netherlands Architecture Institute based in Rotterdam.
