“Ojama” is a Japanese word which generally means to evoke a sense of interruption or an interim pause.

The Ojama installation is about creating a hindrance or momentary interruption in our daily experience of space. This temporary art installation is an exploration of space, time, materiality, and our experience of nature in the urban environment.

Ring | Paris France | Arnaud Lapierre

“Ring” is an installation which takes into consideration the urban space networking : the rhythm, flow, organization and spatial hierarchy. The installation embodies a visual effect that is to connect all of these interactions through the implementation of an optical effect: the repetition of an cubic mirror to break the perception of the place.

Firemen Walk with Us | Maastricht, Netherlands | Rietveld Landscape

The exhibition ‘Firemen walk with us’ confronts the risk-adverse behavior that currently characterizes our society. When it comes to the temporary use of vacant buildings, fire safety is one of the major obstacles to be overcome. After sunset visitors are invited to discover the dark Eiffel building in Maastricht. By creating a landscape of fire in this deserted architectural icon, Maastricht’s Fire Department and Rietveld Landscape show that the thousands of vacant properties offer far more possibilities for use, than one would expect.

Not Garden/ Not Again | an exploration geotextile customisation

Not Garden/ Not Again - PEG

PEG‘s Not Garden/ Not Again project renders visible those materials that typically remain unseen. They used the untapped design potential of low-cost engineering substrates as a means for developing new techniques of surface control and display. Customized geotextiles hold great potential for configuring new relationships between organic and inorganic materials as expressed on the ground’s surface.

Philadelphia is a perfect laboratory for experimental greening techniques given its immense stock of vacant land – over 60,000 properties. Approximately 3,000 abandoned lots have been cleaned and planted over the past six years through the Neighborhood Transformation Initiative (2002). This interim land management program has succeeded in providing neighborhoods with relatively low-cost ways to lessen unsanitary conditions and garbage dumping on abandoned sites. The current greening strategy involves re-grading, lawn installation, a perimeter picket fence, and several trees. Our goal is to derive a cost-effective way to achieve the same aesthetics of care but provide more expressive diversity with lower maintenance.
