Casestudy People and Space M3
The research theme of this course deals with the changing relationship between people and space. On the one hand, we explore the implicit and explicit human needs and, on the other hand, the potential of existing spaces and also how both relate to each other. Following questions can be asked: does the existing space provide sufficient potential to answer the needs of the user? How can aspects of existing space be used? To what extent can an existing room be (re)defined by the explicit and implicit needs of the user?
Casestudy People and Space M3 An Buvens ‐ Stefan Dherdt ‐ Johan Nackaerts
We learn to perceive specific space and examine the relationship with the user. We start with an analytical research.
Information and data are collected and analyzed. Then, we draw conclusions that serve as a starting point to start the design research and add more form and content to it. The research focuses on organizing residential features and searching for inventive mutual relationships, free from any personal frame of reference. Hereby, we enter into interaction with the specific space. This all results in a sculptural human residence in a deliberate and strong correlation with the surrounding space.
