ROLAND RAINER VISITING CHAIR 2013 / 2014

Stefan Bendiks and Aglaée Degros are appointed as the Roland Rainer Visiting Chair 2013/2014.

Stefan Bendiks and Aglaée Degros are the founding partners of Artgineering, based in Rotterdam. Their work re-interprets the relation of infrastructure, landscape and the built environment. Moving between the social and cultural production of space, communication and the careful observation of contemporary territorial realities, Aglaée Degros and Stefan Bendiks have devoted themselves to experimentation and a renewal of the tools of their discipline. Their work combines research and design, and it is characterized by a holistic approach in which creativity and technology come together: art-gineering.
