Line up

At the end of a long day the part-time students showed the concepts on their lined up lap-tops. After dusk we had a farewell ceremony. Out of the hands of all students that attended the workshop a Kom Loy Thai wishing balloon was released into the sky.

The perfect spot

We figured that the RDM terrain was the designated location. The Rotterdamse Droogdok Maatschappij is a former shipyard where ocean steamers for the Holland America Line were build. It turned out to be the perfect spot to find Typical details even for us residents of Rotterdam.

Something new

After a break of twenty-four months we decided to try something new. We developed an assignment on reallocation of industrial heritage by making use of the Typical Planet method. The Rotterdam Academy of Architecture kindly hosted a workshop as committed by the Academy of Art and Design St. Joost in Breda, the Netherlands.
