An old cloister, now architecture school in Ghent, Belgium.
6 'in-between' locations.
6 yellow tape art interventions.
4-day Intensive Student Workshop exposed the importance of ‘in-between' spaces within educational buildings. It focused on mini, ad hoc, spatial tape art interventions that have the potential to trigger not only spatial but also small social change. Students worked on six different sites within an old cloister building of Sint Lucas Architecture School in Ghent, highlighted on the map above. Whilst working with the main school entrance, the inner school atrium, the main vertical communications and the hidden corridors, they tackled several important questions:
How can they by creating various spatial tape art interventions make the ‘in-between’ space more visible, so that it becomes hierarchically as important as the formal part (classrooms, workshops, etc.) of the school?
Can they through their interventions, seed the new ‘in-between’ behaviors among students and staff members?
Can they trigger greater awareness of these interstitial spaces among school users?
Can their installations ignite potential new interior or exterior projects?
