Casestudy Men, Object & Space M4

In the course Man, Object and Space, we come to a synthesis of the previous findings on  the 3 key relationships between humans, object and space, and attention goes to the fourth relationship: that between the man-designer and the man-user. The above relations can only be built in a meaningful way from an ethics of care. The raison d ' être for interior architecture is to offer a spatial response to the values, needs  and desires of the user.

Casestudy Men, Object & Space M4:  An Buvens - Stefan Dherdt - Johan Nackaerts

Here the key relationships of human-object and space come together and be knowledge, insights and skills from the previous learning modules bundled. We start with an analytical study which characteristics of certain style periods, situated between 1850 – 1990, be examined. We also examine the formal, constructive and historical characteristics of a specified spatial framework. Conclusions from these studies are translated into design concepts that could shape the design research. Here we focus on conceiving a residential sculpture across multiple levels, regardless of any personal frames of reference, where we enter into interaction with a defined space and a chosen historical setting.
