Stroom School: Research Lab Next Door

In parallel with the exhibition Orban Space: Luc Deleu - T.O.P. office (2013), participants of Research Lab Next Door study the process and ideas of urbanist and conceptual thinker Luc Deleu. Instruments to measure and register phenomena in the public space of the Schilderswijk are currently in development.

Research Lab Next Door is an interdisciplinary research lab, initiated in September 2012 by the faculty of Interior Architecture / Furniture Design of the KABK (Royal Academy of Art The Hague) in partnership with DRS22. Researchers and tutors: Krijn Christiaansen, Cathelijne Montens, Sophie Krier, Claudia Linders, Renate Boere, Ed van Hinte.
