RECLAIMING THE STREET

Ariadne Urlus and Clint van der Hartt

Reclaiming the Street documents an international “call for ideas” encouraging the design or adaptation of an urban space to be used by both skateboarders and the general public. As part of Endless City, a long-term project of Showroom MAMA (Rotterdam’s center for Media and Moving Art), the competition furthers the investigation of the relationship between skateboard culture, public space and art. This lavishly illustrated book contains all of the nominees, the “people’s choice” selection and the winning design, Twist and Shout by Romi Kohsla Design Studio in New Delhi. A text by architectural historian Ian Borden reflects the playful principles of the competition brief that looks at how skateboarding can transforms the urban environment into a concrete playground, and Jocko Weyland, noted American skateboarder and author, traces the rise of skateboard culture in the eighties.

Timeless Necessity

Louise Schouwenberg

What do beauty and sustainability have in common? The 21st century increasingly demands sustainable design. In practice, this generates products and services laden with moral undertones, which are indeed ethically responsible but fail to appeal to the imagination or convince consumers. In other words, sustainable design is not very beautiful. The IM Masters program of the Design Academy, focused on conceptual design in context, decided that this has to change. During four study periods, students examined the problems we face in the 21st century and the role designers can play in seeking alternatives. Guided by teachers and visiting lecturers, they researched materials and production techniques and formulated visions on beauty and ethical design. Timeless Necessity is both ethics and aesthetics. Source 03 includes diverse texts from both experts and students, as well as research, conclusions along with photos of the final design proposals. An exciting new look into design and marketing!

Tippelzone Revised

Louise Schouwenberg

Source 04 presents research and design proposals concerning the issue of drugrelated prostitution in Eindhoven, Holland. At the request of the City of Eindhoven, the Design Academy’s Master’s Degree Program, IM, researched a designated prostitution area in the Woensel West district and created alternatives. In 2003, to combat problems generated by drug-related street prostitution, the city established a tolerance zone or tippelzone. It helped. Public disturbances were reduced, care for prostitutes improved and the area became safer. The city, however, does not wish to continue facilitating prostitution. They also hope to offer the women other alternatives to help them escape their dependency on drugs and pimps. This requires creative and, most of all, unorthodox solutions. Source 04 includes research, essays and photographic documentation by visiting scholars, professors and student, of the resulting design proposals.

Disclosing Dapperbuurt

Louise Schouwenberg

Perennial challenges for urban planning include the problems and the potential of old urban neighborhoods in large cities. This second volume of Design Academy Eindhoven’s smartly edited new urban design journal takes on the Dapperbuurt neighborhood in Amsterdam – which has a well-known public market, but needs a facelift and public safety improvements – as a case study. Urban design students have come up with a constellation of interesting proposals to give Dapperbuurt a new identity. The perfect-bound journal includes texts by experts on the theme of urban space, research materials, photos of the neighborhood and its residents, schematics and drawings, and scale models.

The Shape of Justice

Louise Schouwenberg

In the first issue of this impeccable new journal on urban design, the Dutch Government Buildings Agency collaborated with students at the Design Academy Eindhoven to develop a design for the new Court of Justice building in Amsterdam. After researching the role of justice in today’s world, students made proposals for the new building, both inside and out, including: how to use universal symbols on and around the building; dealing with the accused, the victims, visitors, and people working in the building. The intriguing end results are shown in drawings, photographs and models, and explained in crystalline texts in English.
