ROOM X PROJECT X on SURRENDER AND RESISTANCE wants to present the student with a moment of reorientation or reset, a calm before the storm, in the form of an exercise consisting of a designed reflection (technical, formal, conceptual, …) on a critical point of his or her choosing.
The designing starts with the individual detection of a critical point; becomes focused and fine-tuned during the design studio by means of collaboration and strives to finalise with a public presentation of the outcome in a collectively shaped exhibition.
The core theme of the studio is resistance-surrender, the core question the generating of a potential project, practice and architecture. The challenge is there for the architect and the architecture not to await but to provoke change and be active part of futurity.
In our search we will continuously fatten the space of the design studio by table talks with guest speakers, by excursions and by work residencies.
