(An)other Vernacular

Afaina de Jong & Grafikens Hus, 2019

€25.000
(An)other Vernacular is a collaboration between architect Afaina de Jong and Grafikens Hus, a museum for graphic design in Södertälje, Sweden. In the project (An)other Vernacular, De Jong investigates how spatial and graphic elements can construct identity and presence within the context of the 21st-century city. (An)other Vernacular evaluates the dominant architectural paradigm within contemporary urban life. The project aims to create a public space that offers a different perspective to the dominant culture.
The first part of the project is based on on-site research in the form of direct observation of people and communities in their urban environment. In addition to this research, the Grafikens Hus facilitates monthly participatory design workshops with Afaina de Jong and local residents. The project results in the design of a public pavilion to be opened in the summer of 2020.

We, the Presidents of Planet Earth

Stëfan Schäfer & Archive Books, 2019

€25.000
We, the Presidents of Planet Earth is a design study and publication on how collective memory operates within a culturally defined perception of time, taking Russia as its starting point. The core of the book is a dialogue between the futuristic poet Velimir Khlebnikov and the Kalmyks, a Mongolian minority in Russia. These two worlds are connected and portrayed in different ways. The starting point is the 'zeg' (eyelid) symbol, which is important in the culture of the Kalmyk people but has changed its meaning under the influence of other cultures. Within this trajectory Schäfer works together with artist Jasmijn Visser and Berlin scientist Elena Vogman. Archive Books is a relevant partner in guiding work with experimental and alternative narrative structures. The publication and the study will be presented with an additional public programme at the end of 2019 at Stroom The Hague, Archive Books Berlin and the Museum of Moscow.

Building Floating, Circular and Resilient Communities

Space & Matter & ONE Architecture, 2019

€25.000
Space & Matter and ONE Architecture are together developing an urban vision for creating floating, circular and resilient communities in the US. They are focusing on three specific and tangible urban transformation locations, situated in former port areas and subject to flood risks. The locations are the San Francisco Bay area, the Boston Waterfront and New York's Red Hook. The latter is the pilot site. Space & Matter brings relevant knowledge and experience from their Dutch design practice to this project. In Amsterdam they were developers and co-developers of the projects De Ceuvel and the SchoonSchip, which are also located within a flood-sensitive Urban Delta. SchoonSchip and De Ceuvel both originated as bottom-up initiatives with a circular design and self-sufficiency in energy. Progress will be presented at the Smart Cities conference in New York in May 2019 and at the Chicago Biennale in September 2019.

How to consume Romie 18

Studio Adela & Gennerper Hoeve, 2019

€25.000
Junyan Tan graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2018, in the Food Non-Food Master programme. Her practice concentrates on translating our complex food system to the public at large. For this she uses an integral design strategy that not only takes account of the sensory qualities of food, but also the nutritional value, ecology and sustainability. For the project 'How to consume Romie 18', she is working with the biodynamic farm Gennerper Hoeve. Using the facilities and knowledge of Gennerper Hoeve, Tan will examine what happens when you take a specific cow out of the herd and the associated system. What does this mean for the meat? How does this influence the distribution system and sales? And what can it mean for our relationship to the animal? The goal is to arrive at a new system for milk production in the Netherlands. The research results will be presented in the form of two dinners and an exhibition.

Benny Nilsen & Spatial Media Laboratories – Expanded Field Recording

Benny Nilsen & Spatial Media Laboratories, 2019

€25.000
Sound artist Bennie Nilsen will work with Spatial Media Laboratories (SML) to investigate how he can expand his current practice of sound art and field recording into the visual domain. In his project 'Expanded Field Recording', Nilsen examines how the experience of landscape and time can be intensified and 'expanded' by working with VR and 3D technologies. The locations and landscapes that Nilsen focuses on are former industrial sites such as waste dumps and military terrains. These sites have often been repurposed, so that the site's history and the traces thereof are hard to see, or only indirectly. Through Expanded Field Recording, Nilsen wishes to make the complex histories of such locations tangible. SML is a new workplace in Rotterdam where makers can develop technological applications. SML shares its knowledge, materials and network. A theoretical-reflective layer will be added to the project in collaboration with SML. To this end, Nilsen intends to work with a scientific researcher in SML's network. The results will be presented at the end of 2019 during a public meetup in Worm.

Weaving of the Future

Alissa + Nienke & EE Exclusives, 2019

€25.000
Alissa + Nienke (Alissa van Asseldonk and Nienke Bongers) is a design studio based on the research of materials, with its own interpretation of surface design: tactile materials that stimulate or challenge us and that enhance our everyday environment. The designers usually start from an existing 'flat' material which they manipulate into a three-dimensional material with new properties and applications. Many of the installations that the studio has developed so far are closely related to textile. However, the designers have never actually worked or experimented with textile or textile techniques. For the project 'Weaving of the Future' they therefore wish to collaborate with the specialised textile industry. They have found a partner in EE Exclusives, which has been a specialist in label weaving since 1900, and is also capable technically of weaving in 3D. Together, they will investigate new weaving techniques and will experiment with the construction of materials. The ultimate goal is to create new (surface) materials that push the limits of the machines. The new materials will be added to Alissa + Nienke's Interactive Material Archive. The partnership intends to present the results at the Dutch Design Week 2019 and at DRIVE 2019, where research-through-design is presented.

Waterfront pavilion

NEXT Architects & ShapeService, 2019

€25.000
The Dutch goal to have a fully circular construction industry by 2050 is a huge challenge. Various parties are researching methods of construction that can be disassembled again. Some of the challenges are the limited availability of materials, storage times, certification and how to connect the various building parts. Despite widespread interest in the industry, there is not much practical experimentation. NEXT Architects is taking the construction of the Circular Pavilion in Amsterdam Noord as an opportunity to test various systems, forms and materials. The applicant is working on a method that dissects a building into layers that function independently of each other and that can be disassembled. To produce and connect the roof layer, the applicant is working with ShapeService, which is part of the Brabant company The Plastic Enterprise, on large-scale 3D-print technology that uses recycled plastic as raw material. The result is a 1:1 prototype of a 3D-printed roof element to be used for the pavilion. This publicly accessible pavilion will serve as a case study for the construction industry. The results will be shared through programmes by the BNA, and in other ways.

Recomposed Bamboo

Chris Kabel & Doornekamp/RHS, 2019

€25.000
At the invitation of the Craft Department of Shanghai University in 2016, designer Chris Kabel conducted a study into bamboo processing in Anji, China's bamboo capital. Focusing on the intrinsic material properties of bamboo stems and parts, Recomposed Bamboo proposes new processing techniques and applications. The goal of the project is to promote the use of bamboo – with its unique aesthetical and constructive qualities – as a sustainable alternative to using profiles and constructions made of steel, aluminium and hardwood. The research into the best construction and production of the profiles and a small series of test-case objects is conducted in collaboration with Doornekamp Woodspecials, a specialist in special wood constructions, which is offering the use of an extensive workplace and expert personnel. The results of the study will be shared and distributed through parties including Galerie Kreo (Paris) and industrial parties.

Neural Narratives

Tivon Rice & TU Delft, 2019

€17.500
Designer/artist/researcher Tivon Rice operates on the interface of digital and visual culture, and he will be collaborating with scientist/researcher Professor Jan Rellermeyer of Delft University of Technology. They will spend a year working on Distributed Systems, a department dealing with Big Data architectures. They are seeking other collaboration parties in various disciplines with expertise in the field of machine learning and with an interest in the creative use of these systems. The goal of the project is to expand the machine learning code that Tivon Rice currently uses in his video and installation work. This system is used to create computer-generated texts on the basis of images. In this way, Tivon Rice can examine the differences between man and machine in the processing of image and text. Also, students are involved in the project to explore, expand and increase the accessibility of currently existing systems. The results will be disseminated through public events, including a new AI installation by Tivon Rice.
