The Urban Condition 7:
In the Making
IT STARTS HERE: MAKING CIVIC
Currently in the practice, the work we do focusses on how things are made and how to make them. This question applies to both the design process as during the actual construction of a project. Through making, we are for instance exploring ways to reduce material and exploring to find unexpected ways of reusing materials. Making is about bringing together of Form and Matter.
A second line of inquiry and debate that is ongoing is that of Civic Space. As practice, we aim to contribute to the realisation of Civic Spaces. We are interested in the capacity of architecture to facilitate Civic Space and how spatial relationships play in important role in this.
These two lines of inquiry, MAKING and CIVIC, emerge out of the current activities in my practice and form a practice based motivation for the Master Dissertation 2019 2020 proposal INCIPIENT RAUM: UNKOWN EDIFICE I: The Urban Condition 7: In the Making. INCIPIENT RAUM Studio for short.
THE TABLE AS A FIELD
The INCIPIENT RAUM studio is a field that is created by juxtaposing and conjoining different fragments, artefacts and concepts. What you will bring to the ‘table’ (literal and figuratively), will rearrange that field. It will change the relationships and proportions between the parts and ideas with the goal of making it your own field of practice. The field finds it origin a curiosity and an eagerness to explore something unknown. The ‘table of artefacts, fragments and concepts’ will play a central role in the studio and will evolve throughout the semesters to a full-fledged – spatial-knowledge landscape.
