The academy still follows this vision and trains the students to a craft that is socially anchored. The RAvB is an academy that trains students who already work in the field part-time to become architects or urban designers.The Fleur Groenendijk Foundation, www.fleurgroenendijkfoundation.nl, focuses on supporting projects relating to Architecture. Projects can for example concern a publication, a presentation, making a model, 3d printing, modeling, an exhibition, a film, a photo report or an investigation. Where the initiator of an idea does not have enough resources to realize the project, a one-off contribution of 2,500.00 can be applied for from the FGF.Dikkie Scipio
