Research Lab Next Door visits 'Orban Space' at Stroom

KABK Exhibition

On Wednesday, Feb 6th, a group of students from various departments of the Royal Academy of the Arts The Hague (KABK) got started with the Research Lab Next Door. During this lab students research the public space of the Schilderswijk area in The Hague, working from local Design Research Station 22 (DRS22).

The guided tour of the exhibition 'Orban Space' in Stroom made urbanist Luc Deleu's passionate practice and body of thought tangible: "There are only two scales one should relate to: that of the human and that of the planet" – said programme director Francien van Westrenen. Top Office's studies of the way we order the world also resonated with many students. Departing from Deleu's self-fabricated measuring instruments, students will start next week with measurements of their own in the streets of the Schilderwijk. Their findings will be presented to the public in the front space of Stroom on March 13th (13.00-17.00). 

Research Lab Next Door is an interdisciplinary research lab, initiated in september 2012 by the faculty of Interior Architecture / Furniture Design of the KABK. Researchers and tutors: Krijn Christiaansen, Cathelijne Montens, Sophie Krier, Claudia Linders, Renate Boere, Ed van Hinte.
