Design Academy Eindhoven and the van Abbemuseum organize a groundbreaking research exhibition. GEO-DESIGN: Junk is on display during Dutch Design Week 2019 and all about waste. Instead of showcasing the exhibition in one space, the organization showcases eight inspiring projects by Design Academy alumni across different locations. Hutspot Eindhoven will host the exhibition ‘One Standard Row House’ by designers Alissa+Nienke, Atelier to the Bone and Kirstie van Noort.
The exhibition ‘One Standard Row House’ takes inspiration from the ever-growing construction industry for houses. Because our need for living spaces is increasing, companies continue to look for efficient ways to build our homes. As a result, designers Alissa+Nienke, Atelier to the Bone and Kirstie van Noort started researching what materials go into one standard row house. More importantly: they want to know what happens to the waste this process generates.
One of their most fascinating discoveries is the amount of waste coming from packaging materials, instead of building materials. In addition, most waste materials are similar, have equal shapes and, therefore, offer great future potential.
318sqm of inspiration
‘One Standard Row House’ invites you to wander through many sheets of LDPE foil. After streaming many construction sites worldwide, the trio discovered that this is the top-ranking material.
