On Display in our new space are recent bachelor and master design projects from the last two semesters of all of our five platforms*. The exhibition in the open space of the former WU library allows for continuous movement from one studio to the next as if in a field condition, a studio-scape.

In this context, one studio places interventions into a Matrix space to create an assembly of interconnected elements in constant conflict with one another and need for adjustment. >> The deconstruction of individual instrumental elements to create an analogue and digital Synthesizer is found on the groundlevel below. >> Woven fragments of Useless newspaper hanging from the ceiling are inspirations for light wooden constructions for an exhibition competition. >> A theory related studio topic called Nordseekrabben (Berthold Brecht) served as a neutral substitute for the ambiguous battlefield of Kulturkritik or tell us: How to Fight Right-Wing Populism?  >> Open space sometimes produces Conflictual Spaces, Ambitious Edges between residents of the city. To what extent can we invent new spatial correlations with the city? >> Just as Unlocking the Commons reflects upon a new articulation of what an architectural project is when we consider it from the perspective of shared spaces and common resources. >>
