A retrospective narrative for the high-speed train
In response to the article ‘Wandering’ in OASE 90, Lilith Ronner van Hooijdonk was asked to make a series of drawings about the subject ‘train’. The series are published in the literary magazine DW B. These drawings dwell upon the train Fyra which because of its greedyness cannot function anymore and thus seeks its vocation elsewhere.
Losely based on the children’s book ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.
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.
