International Women’s Day 2017 Keynote: Petra Blaisse

Petra Blaisse, founder and lead designer at Inside Outside, will present the keynote address at the International Women's Day 2017 Event Series organized by Women in Design.

Blaisse started her career in 1978 at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, in the Department of Applied Arts. In 1991, she founded Inside Outside. The studio works in a multitude of creative areas, including textile, landscape and exhibition design. Starting in 1999, Blaisse invited specialists of various disciplines to work with her, and currently the team consists of about ten people of different professions and nationalities. Inside Outside works internationally, on projects of increasing technical sophistication, ambition, and scale.

In 2011, Blaisse spoke at the GSD on the evolution of Inside Outside and its team. That lecture is available to watch via the GSD's YouTube channel.
