Architecture Relay #6 Visits Expansion Rietveld Academie
We are testing and prototyping the composition of materials, measurements and the detailing of the joint for the adobe mud-stones of Greenhouse Kompier. In June we will hold a workshop and produce the stones ourselves together with the potential users in the greenhouse on site. We are looking forward to it!
The Digital Building
The internal website for the project spaces of the Rietveld Academie and the Sandberg Instituut is online. It organises the possibility for students to make temporary use of so called projectspaces: free spaces which are distributed throughout the building. These project spaces stimulate collaboration and interdisciplinary work. The idea of the projectspaces and the corresponding website is executed as part of our winning competition design for the extension of the art academy. Additional to designing the physical building, we had the possibility to add our concept of free educational spaces to the program of the school. We like to see the website as ‘the digital building’.
