“City Membership” Lecture

  • (Lecture)
  • When: 27 August 2013 | 18.30-20.30
  • Where: The Auditorium, TCDC

Jurgen Bey from Studio Makkink & Bey, in coorperation with Interior Architecture Program, School of Architecture and Design, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (SoA+D) will introduce us altered ways of looking at the city and how we could respond to the city with different design solutions. Immediate observation on specific natures of a city – the function, the architecture, the history, the meaning and the happening -- is a thread to establish an idea of city membership.

This lecture is part of (Bangkok) City Membership Design Workshop 2013

About the speaker

In 2002, design office Studio Makkink & Bey was founded by Rianne Makkink and Jurgen Bey. In their eyes, urban planning, architecture, landscape architecture are inextricably connected to product design. In more than 200 projects, commissioned by museums, galleries, art or government organizations, companies and private commissioners, as well as in many lectures a design vision is delivered in which the form of a design follows from its context.

Studio Makkink & Bey develops products on a small scale, such as furniture and tableware, interiors of private houses, museums, offices and other public spaces. The larger scale of architecture and urbanism is addressed in the design of various pavilions, parks and studies into new ways to program areas. Each time a design by Studio Makkink & Bey starts with constructing a story based on what already exists such as functions, structures and objects.
