Architecture Relay #6 visits Expansion Rietveld Academie
Website project spaces on-line
The internal website for the project spaces of the Rietveldacademie and the Sandberg Instituut is on-line. It organizes the possibility for students to make temporarily use of a projectspace throughout the building, thus stimulating collaboration and interdisciplinary work. The website is executed as part of our winning competition design for the extension for the art academy. Apart from the spatial design we were able to add our concept of free educational spaces to the program of the school
