Performative Space

Re-activation public space

Public space is traditionally the place where strangers meet. With the arrival of social media, there’s little reason for these casual encounters. Debates are held, but no longer in public sapce. The research ‘Performative Space’ studies new ideas on the design of spaces for interaction.

Performative Space is inspired by performance art, an art movement from the 1960s. The actively engagement of the public by this movement also is the startingpoint for performatve space. The design focuses on interaction between the people and space.

Based on the research we made a proposal for the design of two performative spaces in Rotterdam and Eindhoven. The design BELLEN in Eindhoven is built.

About Lilith Ronner van Hooijdonk

The office was founded in 2010 in Rotterdam. We design narrative architecture that tells the story of the assignment at hand. A story with different layers: that of the context, a response to building tradition, the wishes of our client, sustainable applications and technical opportunities. The architecture surprises with imagination. Our work reaches from transformations to public spaces like a Performative Space in Eindhoven, and from building a multi-family house in Amsterdam to researching our practice and writing stories about it.
