Workshops

My workshops are for experts as well as communities who wish to look at a space, urban environment or landscape otherwise. Participants experience and document a site using all their senses. Experts experiment with how to meaningfully apply their perceptions in the design they are working on. As an academic teacher I am able to create and perform educational methods that support creative processes in both teams and individuals. My workshops are in Dutch or English. For me, workshops are as equally important as exhibitions as they generate interactions about space and environments.

 

Walking and mapping

Collective walks: we go walking in the environment the site is located in and we use the act of walking for experiencing physical and psychological perceptions and for reflection and generating new ideas. The walks can be done 1+1 or with a team.

Mapping: This workshop provides space and ideas to explore photography, cartography and model-making as techniques and media to map your perceptions of a site.

Sessions

Creative working sessions are a way to zoom in on a specific site and to explore and make use of thoughts, visions and ideas from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Sessions can take place on the site that is to be redesigned or in (the environments of) my studio, which is located on former military zone ‘Mauritskazerne’ between Utrecht and Arnhem, close to a forest, highway and Intercity train station.

Studio sessions: in my studio a design team gathers to collectively explore their spatial planning project in an inspiring environment. I lead the session and challenge the creative process in order to generate original and meaningful ideas. A prior visit to my studio to discuss possibilities is for free.

Individual sessions: if you are a landscape architect, spatial planner, artist or other creative expert, you are welcome to visit my studio to discuss your projects once or regularly, based on your personal question or wish. Our first individual session is for free.
