Two rounds of Architecture grants 2017

21 August 2017

Putting social and civic tasks on the agenda and devising surprising solutions for pressing spatial issues are aspects that many design-driven research projects share in common. This type of research has become an integral part of the architecture discipline. The Grant Programme for Architecture has made an important contribution to this. However, we are seeing a greater diversity of project forms. So what is it that distinguishes the supported projects? In a brief look back over this year’s initial rounds, that question is answered by a selection of exemplary projects.
design-driven research
In the bilingual publication Een Stad van Komen en Gaan / A City of Comings and Goings, Crimson Architectural Historians investigates the spatial impact of migration on the development of cities and villages. The start-up and implementation phases of this research into the peaks and troughs in demographics as a consequence of migration were supported by the Fund. The initial results were presented in the spring at the International Social Housing Festival in Amsterdam. This project is making an important contribution to research, analysis and reflection within the realm of architecture, especially as diverse international parties were involved in working on this social theme. This contributes to the international positioning of Dutch design expertise.

publication
In conjunction with Switzerland-based Lars Müller Publishers, Theo Deutinger is releasing his socially critical Notebook of Tyranny (NOT). This Neufert-like publication provides insight into the cruel consequences of prevailing laws and rules from all over the world by means of detailed graphic illustrations. The examples range from guidelines for the layout of frontier zones and refugee camps to urban planning measures for ‘crowd control’ and the technical guidelines for slaughterhouses. The publication calls these and other system solutions into question from an artistic and cultural angle. This project is being supported because of the experimental character and the crossover between the disciplines of architecture and graphic design. It is at the interface of disciplines that one often finds professional innovation.

series of debates
Under the title ‘Research by Debate’, De Dépendance foundation is organizing a five-part multidisciplinary series of public discussions about topical urban issues. In Rotterdam extensive research is being carried out into developments that (will) to a large degree influence life in the city. It is remarkable that the initiative started out by studying various Rotterdam-based cultural institutions. The results are now being shared with a broad public, in cooperation with the City of Rotterdam and the Algemeen Dagblad daily newspaper, to foster greater engagement with the city’s future development. This project is being supported because of the multidisciplinary cooperation between diverse actors from the cultural field and the opportunities this offers for the reinforcement of the local knowledge infrastructure.

design competition
EuropanNL has opted to follow a new course and for its 14th edition is collaborating closely with the City of Amsterdam. The ‘Productive Amsterdam’ competition asks designers to envisage new models for a social and liveable city for living and working at five locations. The focus is on the encouragement of good commissioning practices and professionalization of design practice. By supporting the winners and coaching the City Council in its role as a public commissioner, EuropanNL wants to increase the chances of the winning plans being executed. The competition has now closed, with the first jury deliberations taking place on 29 September, immediately followed by a public meeting at Pakhuis de Zwijger.

exhibition
‘Unfair Amsterdam’ is an art fair that aims to foster talent development and professionalization for young artists. For the exhibition design of the upcoming edition, Unfair is joining forces with UNStudio to organize an invited design competition for talented young (interior) architects. The winning design will be realized, forming the backdrop for the presentation of new work by 40 young artists. The fringe programme will be devoting attention to the design practice of the winning architect. This project is being supported because it promotes the artistic development of young design talent and in addition brings a large, art-loving public into contact with the architecture discipline.

overview
In the first two rounds of 2017 a total of 102 grant applications were processed, of which 29 were awarded a grant. The combined amount of subsidy provided was about €550,000. This support made it possible for projects with a total value of more than €2 million to be undertaken. By investing in the initiation phase of projects in particular, the Fund performs a pioneering role. Such grants function as a catalyst for investments by third parties.

grants awarded
You can find a selection of projects awarded with a grant from the Architecture Programme at the bottom of this page.

next deadline
Do you want to submit a grant application for an architecture project? This year’s final deadline is on Wednesday, 18 October 2017. You can find further information about the Grant Programme for Architecture here.

It is advisable to seek contact with the Fund about an intended application or to mail in a draft proposal for feedback at least two weeks before the closing date, but preferably earlier.

Selection Open Call Van Doesburg Studio-House Paris #2

25 September 2018

In July 2018 a second open call was issued by the public cultural funds – the Mondriaan Fund, Creative Industries Fund NL, Performing Arts Fund NL, the Dutch Foundation for Literature and the Netherlands Film Fund – for a residency at the Van Doesburg studio-house in Meudon-Val-Fleury. The residency is intended for artists who are working in the many fields in which Theo van Doesburg and Nelly were active: architecture, visual art, literature, poetry, music, design and performing arts.
The open call attracted a total of 29 applications spread across the creative industries, performing arts and film disciplines. From these applications a committee selected screenwriter Helena van der Meulen (film), Jason Hansma (digital culture), and a duo application for an interdisciplinary project by Rozalie Hirs (composer) and Machiel Spaan (architecture). All these creatives will develop their artistic practice in the Van Doesburg studio-house over a four-month period.

Helena van der Meulen (film)
Helena van der Meulen will use her residency at the Van Doesburg studio-house for the last developmental phase of Human Beasts, a feature film about the emergence, blossoming and demise of the CoBrA movement with a crucial role for Paris. During her sojourn she will undertake the final stages of (field) research with the support of a French co-producer, write the script for the film, and develop a storyboard for the project in partnership with the prospective director.

Jason Hansma (digital culture)
During his residency, Jason Hendrik Hansma will be investigating the interdisciplinary work of Theo van Doesburg and filmmaker Jean Painlevé. Hansma will incorporate the outcomes in new work that uses algorithms to transpose the work of these two artists to the present day. The working period will result in an exhibition where the work will be presented.

Rozalie Hirs (music) and Machiel Spaan (architecture)
During their joint residency, Rozalie Hirs and Machiel Spaan will be working on their interdisciplinary installation Ways of Space, an investigation into the significance of sound within a space. Hirs and Spaan will be taking the characteristic sounds of the Van Doesburg studio-house as a source of inspiration – an instrument, as it were – to develop an interactive music composition that is not only inspired by their personal sojourn in the studio-house but also elaborates on Theo van Doesburg’s ideas about a new architecture of exploded space. The residency in the studio-house will result in a concert and an exhibition.

evaluation of the proposals
In its evaluation, the interdisciplinary advisory committee’s prime consideration was the artistic quality of the selected residents, secondly the strength of the proposal in relation to the residency’s location.

contribution
The residents receive a contribution of €1,000 per month for travel, materials, transportation and living expenses. The funds cover the rental of the studio and living space, as well as support, settling these expenses with the Van Doesburg studio-house directly.

first open call
From the first open call, an interdisciplinary committee selected visual artist Antonis Pittas and architect Marcel Moonen.

third and final open call
For the third and final open call in 2019, creatives and intermediaries can submit a proposal in the fields of visual arts & heritage and the performing arts. Keep an eye on the websites of the Mondriaan Fund and Performing Arts Fund NL for further information.

Open Call Turkey, Russia, Egypt, Morocco #2

19 September 2018

Creative Industries Fund NL is calling on designers, makers, curators and cultural organizations in the Netherlands to submit a plan for a project that deploys design for sustainable and inclusive societies. The open call invites cultural parties to join forces with a local partner to turn their minds to a topical issue, observation or development in Turkey, Russia, Egypt or Morocco. The project should entail an egalitarian collaboration between the parties.
The rapid growth of cities is a topic that is relevant in the four countries that the open call is focusing on, resulting in new relationships between street culture, identity and public space, as well as between the city and the countryside. The appropriation of the city by various parties – grassroots and top-down, public and private, established and emerging – takes a diversity of forms, in the physical as well as the virtual domain. Designers are being asked to put topical themes that relate to the city, its surroundings and users on the agenda, to question them or propose solutions. This calls for cross-disciplinary and context-sensitive collaborations at the interface of culture, new media, technology, craft, society and the new economy.

collaboration
The project team (of Dutch and local partners) adopts a standpoint concerning sustainable and inclusive societies within the theme that the project focuses on. The plan provides insight into how and why various stakeholders will be involved with the project. Projects can take a diversity of forms, from artistic, speculative or design-based research to the implementation of a pilot, intervention or campaign. The perspective of Turkish, Russian, Egyptian or Moroccan parties is crucial and should be embedded in the project.

focus
This is a follow-up to the first series of Open Calls focused on these four countries that the Fund issued previously. As a result of findings concerning the first series of open calls, the Fund is more emphatically seeking for projects that relate to disciplines in the fields of design and digital culture, as well as every possible crossover.

submissions
Projects can be submitted from 1 December 2018 to 21 January 2019 via Creative Industries Fund NL’s online application environment.
