Open Call Russia: The 'Samarsky Yard' – Housing Heritage in the Post-Socialist City

Schiemann Weyers architects, 2018

€14.770
In the post-socialist city of Samara, there is only a small group of selected inhabitants actively opposing the destruction of historic buildings and values in the city centre. Together with architectural office 'City Code' in Samara, architect Vitaly Stadnikov and Tatiana Gudz, advisor/researcher at Perm National Research Polytechnic University, Jörn Schiemann and Otto Weyers are investigating the possibilities for supporting the actions of these committed citizens and bridging the gap with other inhabitants and stakeholders. The valuable heritage actually contributes to the identity of the city and its inhabitants. In the historic centre there is a 'Wooden City', a unique ensemble of low-rise flats and decorated wooden houses which were built around the turn of the twentieth century. Inside is the Samara courtyard, a unique inner courtyard where 5-10 families form their own community. An important question for successful reconstruction and transformation of the surroundings is determining legal ownership. Since the time of communism that is often unclear, which leads to uncertainty for the residents and means that a feeling of ownership is lacking. The study consists of two strategies: an 'atlas' containing an identification and visualization of the current and future structure and a strategic campaign to activate awareness in residents, entrepreneurs, investors and politicians. During the start phase, research data will be gathered and analyzed and a field study will take place by means of interviews with various stakeholders. In the 1990s, Schiemann and Weyers participated in a series of seminars in Samara, which were entitled Club for Architectural and Urban Strategies and Exhibitions (CAUSE). They discovered this issue there and created a network in Samara.

(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.

Ceramic Residency Kasia Zareba

Studio Kasia Zareba & Vista Alegre, 2019

€12.500
Designer Kasia Zareba was selected to develop her project during the residency programme in Portugal at IDPool (International Design Pool), the creative laboratory of ceramic company Vista Alegre. During the residency, Zareba will investigate the influence of colour on the perception of objects and the influence of colour on the environment. Her objective is to learn about ceramic production processes in the context of large modern company Vista Alegre. In a subsequent step, Zareba will implement the knowledge gained in the production of her own brand Krafla, which she set up together with Paulina Pająk and in which she collaborates with other young designers. The residency takes place from 7 January to 29 March 2019.

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.

Body Building

Cookies, 2019

€7.500
'Body Building' is a project by the Dutch designstudio Cookies on the work by Lina Bo Bardi and Clarice Lispector. They were part of the movement to create a new radical language in Brazil between 1950 and 1980, when the country was subject to intense political unrest. Both produced works that redefined structural and linear parameters in architecture and literature. In Teatro Oficina, the iconic building by Bo Bardi in Sao Paulo, Cookies will stage a presentation/performance of the text 'The Egg and the Chicken' by Lispector. Incorporating stage architecture, art, animation, acting and costume design, this project represents a collaboration that expands the definition of theatre, architecture and design. The knowledge and experience gained will be brought back to the Netherlands through lectures, workshops and performances with partners such as Het Nieuwe Instituut.
