„How about if architects concentrating on unlocking the spatial potential of existing places without building any new ones? It seems paradoxical that a profession thinks about its significance while its core business – the production of space – is questioned. At the same time, however, it is an invitation to expand the meaningfulness of architectural design, in which space itself is the programme.”
Tomas Ooms is talking about this contradiction. He is a practicing architect, a composer and performing musician, leading the design research practice „Studio Tuin en Wereld” in Antwerp/Belgium. He curates the lecture series „Craftsmanship engagement” at the Faculty of Architecture at the KU Leuven.
