This exhibition emphasizes contrasts within the collection, with fine crystal glasses used by directors placed alongside rough tools for building dikes. Such objects symbolize the inner and outer worlds of the institution in its centuries-old struggle against the water.

INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC SPACE

Client: Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Department of Inter-Architecture

Project: A week-long workshop for first and second year students on ‘culturally specific design’. 2013

Students observed the behaviour of people from different cultural backgrounds in the city to see whether it reflects a particular way of using public space. Drawing on the research findings, they then designed an intervention in public space that accentuates certain culture-based behaviour. The photographs show the student projects.

800 METER COETZEE

Client: De Balie, Amsterdam

Project: Spatial installation for Coetzee Festival in 2010.

To mark the 70th birthday of Nobel Prize winner J.M. Coetzee, the Balie cultural centre organized a festival in honour of the celebrated South African writer. In the installation designed by Archetypisch and SuopuLab, every line of Summertime, Coetzee’s latest novel, was cut out and glued together. His 297-page book became an 800-metre-long strip that meandered through the spaces of the Balie.
