Active as an independent designer since 2007, I focus on physically experiencing, researching and defining the various aspects of public space. My work strives to build upon existing dynamics and input from the various users of the public realm.
My fascination of public space is especially rooted in its informal use. This is especially inspire-ring because everyday basic needs often manifest themselves in the informal and unstructured ways.
It is this unregulated use of space that reveals a lot about the needs of people in the public realm. I am convinced that the most exciting and challenging form of use of public space is found within an urban context. This usually happens in places where inhabitants have the possibility to define their spaces. My designs strive to create situations and develop means in which this spontaneity can manifest itself.
