[AVDAK]

NL
Zoals de naam van het AOB suggereert, wil het architectuur als kunstvorm verkennen, door mechanismes uit de kunst te identificeren, te benoemen en te contextualiseren en in te zetten voor het begrijpen, ontwerpen en maken van tentoonstellingsarchitectuur voor kunst. Het is een ontwerpmatig onderzoek gericht op het ontwikkelen, expliciteren en bevragen van architecturale ontwerpstrategieën vanuit het overlappende veld tussen kunst en architectuur; een veld dat aanwezig gesteld wordt door het ontwerp en de realisatie van een ruimtelijke ‘display’. Cureren – gezien als de ruimtelijke distributie van argumenten en een discours – wordt hierbij ingezet als een educatief en onderzoeksmatig middel tot generen en overbrengen van zowel beeldende als discursieve kennis over de persoonlijke relatie met architectuur.
Het academisch ontwerpbureau AVDAK wil èn de praktijk èn het onderwijs èn onderzoek van cureren als leervorm consolideren en verder ontwikkelen. Naast deze ontwerpstudio in de masters, organiseert AVDAK ook The/Le/Het Salon, een elective op masterniveau in semester 2.

The Academic Design Office ‘Architecture for, through and as Art’ aims to explore architecture as an art form, through identifying, naming and contextualizing mechanisms from art and using them to understand, design and create exhibition architecture for art. It is a design driven research that focusses on the development, articulation and evaluation of architectural design strategies in the overlapping field between art and architecture. Curating – defined as ‘conceiving a discourse as a spatial distribution of arguments’ – is used as an educational and research tool for generating and conveying both visual and discursive knowledge about one’s personal relationship with architecture.

PD-r/ADO, Engendering Flanders Landscape – urban living

When in The Housing Question Engels was striving for a definitive solution to the housing question, he was explicitly referring to utopian models which proposed the dissolution of the antithesis between town and country. The housing question, which is even more pressing today, cannot be solved by palliative solutions. If we do not go beyond the understanding of the territory as divided between the city and the countryside, or of domestic space as divided between shelter and production, of proprietor logics versus commons, we can expect the housing question to continue presenting challenges of accessibility and affordability for the decades to come. The studio Homes for Flanders further develops a research path initiated during the current academic year (2017-18) and centered on the problem of housing and domestic space, with a specific focus on both Flanders and Brussels.
The research is part and the second step of a longer trajectory (ADO project) that will run for two more years and will culminate in a publication and exhibition. While the starting point of the research is the need for a large amount of new living units resulting from the changing demographic and socio-economic conditions of this part of Europe (it is foreseen that 300.000 housing units need to be built by 2030 in Flanders), the specific focus of this year’s studio is property and the idea that new forms of ownership should be based on the notion of the ‘common’, thus bypassing the traditional dialectic relationship between public and private.

While this notion has been extensively studied by different disciplines, acquiring new impetus in the recent years, its application to the field of architecture is mostly limited and confined to the study of the urban common, the organization and management of territorial resources and of their consequent spatial implications. Applications to the field of housing are mostly limited and concerned exclusively with the development of alternative models of urban dwellings such as ‘co-housing’ and ‘co-living’. The studio will explore the possibility of deploying the logics of alternative forms of ownership in urban, suburban and rural territories not simply to develop new forms of communality among inhabitants, but also as the step to trigger new forms of production, local subsistence and ultimately the architectural forms of a new domestic space.
