Sensorial Porcelain

Tijmen Smeulders, 2016

€8.000
Product designer Tijmen Smeulders creates objects from a diversity of materials, often raising questions about the combination of the object’s function and the use of the material. During the residency in Arita, Smeulders wants to experiment with the sensorial aspects of porcelain. He also wants to explore new properties or a new experience of the material using existing techniques, working in collaboration with the local artisans. In this regard Smeulders wants to combine the traditional qualities of Arita porcelain with contemporary forms and new applications of the material.

Harvest map of the design industry of Milan

Superuse Lab, 2017

€7.500
In this start-up grant application, Superuse is harnessing the renovation of a private villa in Como to bring reuse, upcycling and ecological building to the attention of the professional circles in Italy and worldwide . In collaboration with the Politecnico of Milan, the local industry and the building sector, Superuse is inventorying and documenting Milan’s waste-material stream in an online harvest map. This is a self-developed open source tool whereby architects and designers can identify where industrial waste materials are available for reuse. In addition to the Italian application of the harvest map, Superuse is organizing workshops in the villa focused on the concrete application of ‘harvested’ waste material. To publicize the project, Superuse is seeking to link up with the design industry’s networks in the Milan region.

African Water Cities

NLÉ, 2017

€7.500
NLÉ, founded by architect Kunlé Adeyemi, is applying for a start-up grant for the initial development phase of a publication centred round the research project African Water Cities. The project has its origins in Adeyemi and Suzanne Lettieri’s ongoing research into the water crisis in African cities. The knowledge they have garnered since 2011 will serve as the framework for a new up-to-date research focusing on the challenges and potentials of African cities and communities in and beside water. The researchers maintain that it is in these places that two of the greatest challenges of our time converge: climate change and urbanization. The publication focuses on mapping 7 factors (DESIMER), including demography, economy, socio-political, infrastructure, morphology, environment and resources. Speculative maps are to be generated alongside quantitative data maps. In addition 7 essays will be produced that will throw light on the various factors by, among others, water envoy Henk Ovink, architect David Adjaye and economist Razia Khan. The photographer Iwan Baan will provide a visual essay for the book. The aim of the publication is to learn from existing strategies and spawn innovative, sustainable urban solutions for climate change in Africa. In addition to research and content-development, the start-up phase includes expanding partnerships, finding a publisher, financial infrastructure and developing a communications strategy.

Social Housings

RESARCHEX, 2017

€7.495
Architect Zuzanna Mielczarek and urban planner Zofia Piotrowska are applying for a start-up grant for a research project into social housing in the Netherlands and Poland. The applicants maintain that affordable housing is a pressing issue in both countries. In order to engender innovative solutions the researchers plan to make a critical analysis of recent developments in the field of social housing in the Netherlands. Drawing on six selected cases, they intend to focus specifically on the heterogeneity of the different systems, the diversity of housing forms, the mix of functions, social levels and financing models. The research is to result in a series of critical articles and recommendations on the online platforms Social Housing, ArchiNed and Architektura Murator. In addition the findings will be used as input for housing briefs in the Warsaw Social District, an experimental municipal social housing project in Warsaw. Content partners in the trajectory are Amateur Cities, Failed Architecture, BBGK Architekci, the city of Warsaw, BGK Nierychomosci SA, Havensteder and STIPO.

Capital centres in rural Africa

Network of Research & Architecture, 2017

€7.500
Network of Research & Architecture (NoRA) is carrying out research into the large-scale rural-urban migration phenomenon. It maintains that the usually unskilled newcomers from rural areas often end up in poor living conditions in the city. At the same time the departure of young workers threatens to put pressure on food production in rural areas. By gathering data from official institutions on the one hand and, on the other, harnessing the rural inhabitants’ local knowledge, NoRA is seeking to make a realistic analysis of the situation. In this respect the factors that lie at the root of the migration stream, such as the limited financial profit from agriculture, play a pivotal role. The project’s initial phase is intend to establish a pilot location whereby NoRA, together with local bodies, investigates the potential for building an innovative rural centre with an appropriate programme focused on education and health services. In doing so NoRA aims to offer an alternative to rural-urban migration.
