Intrastructures, Brussels, Belgium
OpenStructures (OS) explores the potential of a modular construction model where everyone designs for everyone on the basis of one shared geometrical grid. OS is about parts that are widely interchangeable, objects that allow us to infinitely adapt, repair, and built an environment that is less uniform and more playful. OS is about imagining solutions together at a moment in time in which resources are becoming increasingly scarce and continuous change is the new status quo. In which everybody is connected to everybody and everything can be produced everywhere.
Thomas Lommée (*1979) is the founder of Intrastructures, a pragmatic, utopian design-studio that applies product-, service- and system design as tools for change. He is also the initiator of the OpenStructures project, a hands-on design experiment that explores the possibility of a modular construction model where everyone designs for everyone on the basis of one shared geometrical grid. Next to his activities as a designer /design researcher, Lommée is a regular lecturer and jury member at numerous design institutions all over Europe.
The talk will be held in English language.
