Adrien Ravon speaking at KAF Almere, 21 March 2018, Almere, The Netherlands
On Wednesday, March 21, Adrien Ravon, researcher from the first hour of the The Why Factory of MVRDV, will elaborate on the ongoing architectural project Porocity at De Kunstlinie in Almere.
In his presentation he will explain how closed facades of skyscrapers can be opened by means of a series of spatial experiments such as those in KAF's display window.
You can measure porosity / openness in architectural structures and in the research of T? F you control the use of the pixel (in this case the LEGO® nop) as a design tool. By opening facades, the demand for more quality in the built environment and the need to take a critical look at the process of densification in cities in general is addressed.
The Why Factory (T?F) is a global think-tank and research institute, run by MVRDV and Delft University of Technology and led by professor Winy Maas. It explores possibilities for the development of our cities by focusing on the production of models and visualisations for cities of the future.
Date: 21st of March, 2018
Location: De Kunstlinie, Esplanade 10, 1315 TA Almere
