During three years, (2015, 2017, 2018) I was kindly invited to work as tutor with the promising students in the fields of urban planning, landscape architecture and architecture on developing they’re own hand in design. of the Academie van Bouwkunst in Amsterdam.

Led by head Bruno Vermeersch, Master of form, was a course with a focus on form. Whichever way you look at it, everything that surrounds us is form. It is an integral part of our life and so of architecture, landscape architecture and urban planning, if not the main basis of these fields of study.

V5 Michou Nanon de Bruijn - Man in between Spaces 2015 / Academie van Bouwkunst

While moving trough a space we are always in between other spaces. The creations surrounding us are not solely defining its shape, but also do have an impact on the visitor. In this workshop we are investigating the effect a space can have on an human being. Which movements or emotions are directed by it and which can be influenced? You are encouraged to leverage their varied expertise in order to find provocative and perhaps unexpected forms. Techniques of representation and iterative development across various mediums will be required.
