PROJECTS

Complexity

Often, comparisons, parallels to landscape, are drawn to nature in the work of Behnisch & Partner.

Networked Urbanism

To reinforce the significance of public space we have to deal with at least two “public”, the global and the local public, by creating spheres where local and global public space can fuse and interchange.

New Spatial Paradigms

New interdisciplinary fields of planning and design are introduced: Soft Urbanism, exploring the interaction of urbanism and the space of mass media and communication networks, and Hybrid Space Design, developing fused analog-digital / architectural-media spaces.

Vilém Flusser

The new image of Man looks roughly like this: we have to imagine a network of human interrelations, a ‘field of intersubjective relations’. The strands of this web must be conceived as channels through which information (ideas, feelings, intentions and knowledge etc.) flows. When these strands knot for a moment, they form what we call ‘human subjects’. The totality of the strands constitutes the concrete sphere of life and the knots are abstract extrapolations.

Hybrid Design Institute

The merging of the three Dutch design related institutes, architecture, design and media, into a new hybrid design institute.

Network Space

Hybrid Space Lab is concerned with how the expanding media networks interact with the physical, the public space. Their work is to be seen at the International Architecture Biennale 1ab in Rotterdam. International Architecture Biennale 1ab in Rotterdam.

Design Zone

Transforming the facade of the Humboldt Forum into a living organism.
The special art edition of DER TAGESSPIEGEL, the German newspaper, publishes interview on the changing role of design in times of crisis.

Technology and the City

How do we ensure quality of life in the city? How can we achieve that the environment will not suffer any damage? And that we can grow old as healthy as possible? In the year 2018, digitization can give an unprecedented dimension to the answers to these questions. Elphi Nelissen and Frans Vogelaar explore the possibilities of the digital technology for the future of the city.

Domotica

Developments in the field of Domotica, the house is becoming SMART.

Media & City

Public urban space and the “space” of communication networks are usually considered to be competing, even mutually exclusive frameworks for social interaction. In fact, the traditional functions of public urban space are being taken over by telecommunication networks, their input/output devices implanted in (private) interiors.

Like Space @ Transmediale

Like Space kick’s off project for the Affect Space 2 year long project initiated and organised by Eric Kluitenberg at the Transmediale Festival “Face Value” on 4 February 2018 at the HKW in Berlin.

Mobility Immobility

The conference A2B is an initiative of architect Jacques Herzog. This year’s exhibition “We are building the future for you” was presented by the prominent lecturers as designers of the future. International luminaries of architecture in real space like Toyo Ito were placed alongside pioneers of virtual architecture: Elizabeth Sikiaridi explained the term ‘idensity’, which has already been protected by her, which describes the density of media and urban networks and the fusion of virtual and real spaces.

Hybrid Prosumer @ Forbes

But the most interesting development that I could find was the hybrid design exhibition held in conjunction with the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne.

The “Hybrid Design” project, initiated by Prof. Frans Vogelaar, Academy of Media Arts Cologne, approaches technological developments from the perspective of the designer, by “inhabiting technology”, by transforming these technological developments to meet the way we want to live. It introduces the design fields that are emerging through the combination and fusion of environments, objects and services in the information-communication age.

Rex @ Kathimerini

Publication of the research on the Athens “Rex” theater and cinema complex in the Greek daily “Kathimerini”. The research on “Rex” was done in preparation of the documentary “Fabric” that is screened at the Athens School of Fine Arts in the framework of documenta 14 from April to July 2017.

Humboldt Jungle @ Make City

Hybrid Space Lab unleashed and subsequently curated a heated discourse around this utopian proposition. The combination of tabloid-friendly imagery with international expertise on greening cities and climate change proved to be a highly effective strategy.
