On Thursday 12 October, Lionel Devlieger from ROTOR and Jos de Krieger from Superuse Studios present a lecture as part of Evaluating Alternatives, our series highlighting the changing roles of the architect and designer. This is a much-discussed topic in recent years, both within these disciplines and by those who trust in design's problem-solving ability.
ROTOR design collective (Brussels) specialise in rethinking material flows in industry and construction. They reflected this knowledge in their architectural projects and their development of critical thinking models regarding design, materials, and waste. Lionel Devlieger's lecture concerns ROTOR's methodology and underlying motives.
Superuse Studios (Rotterdam) is renowned for its innovative design methods in which the designers make their open-source tools available to the broader design community. Their primary objective is to make full and effective use of often-wasted raw materials and energy. Jos de Krieger, partner at Superuse Studios, has produced acclaimed installations and interventions. He will talk about the research and designs and the innovative product-, interior- and building lines and strategies that Superuse Studios designs for smart urban transformation.
