It's a bit strange reporting on an event I myself organized (with a lot of help of course) but perhaps it will bring some unexpected insights. <br><br> First It's good to introduce what the actual aim of the conference was:<br><br><i>The Projective Landscape Stylos Conference wants to research and explore the similarities between a few -at first sight- diverse developments within the architecture debate taking place in Europe and the United States. These developments appear to offer a fruitful strategy for architecture in the 21st century. Because this specific debate is very scattered, the conference aims to map and clarify these different developments and hopes to come to a clearer formulation of what now is being referred to as projective practice. By which we mean an architecture that is engaged with the reality of the society in which it is embedded, but focuses on it...</i> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21450923/the-projective-landscape The Projective Landscape Edwin Gardner 2006-03-12T19:59:39-05:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>so, this week it wil finally happen, The conference I worked on together with a dedicated group of students will take place.

One post per month is probably ok...I guess, quality goes above quantity.<br><br><img src="http://www.gardner.nu/edwin/newyearsevedelft2006.jpg"><br> (picture: Bart van Bueren, taken from the roof of the Bacinol)<br><br> 2006 started with a great new years eve party at the <a href="http://www.bacinol.nl/" target="_blank">Bacinol</a> an empty warehouse in Delft which now houses small creative companies. Together with the <a href="http://www.rundfunk.nl" target="_blank">Rundfunk DJ collective</a> I DJ'd there untill 6 in the morning and still people were dancing! After the holidays I didn't have to do any test's so I had some time off. ...well from school at least... because I'm very busy with work at <a href="http://www.volumeeproject.org" target="_blank">Volume</a> (webeditor) and with organizing a conference at <a href="http://www.stylos.nl" target="_blank">Stylos</a>. <br> Mason commented on my previous post with the question If I could give you a report of the <a href="http://www.projectivelandscape.nl" target="_blank">Projective Landscape conference</a>. Which shouldn't be a problem because I'm organizing it, we are actually looking at possibilities to put all the lectures online in streaming video. but I can't make any hard promises about that...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21450673/delft-web-essentials Delft Web Essentials Edwin Gardner 2006-01-07T16:55:38-05:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>To kick of my school blog carreer, I will just deliver you some essential on the web if you want to study or are already studying in Delft. <br><br> If you want to have a room/living space in Delft try the <a href="http://www.duwo.nl" target="_blank">DUWO</a> it is a Dutch student housing organisation. Rooms for rent are offered <a href="http://www.duwo.nl/aanbod/layout/Aanbod.cfm?NodeID=3&amp;&amp;CFID=519315&amp;CFTOKEN=96858558" target="_blank">here</a> (most information is in Dutch but also some English) For more extensive English information go <a href="http://www.duwo.nl/foreign/" target="_blank">here</a><br><br> Delft is famous for its rich student life and this is certainly true for the Architecture Faculty which counts over 3500 students. <br> From parties to lectures and workshop go to <a href="http://www.stylos.nl" target="_blank">Stylos</a>, the Architecture Student Association. The site is mostly Dutch but you can always drop by their 'office' on the second floor left of the main entrance. Another interesting more internationaly oriented organisation is <a href="http://www.argus.cc" target="_blank">Argus</a> still a relatively young organisation but very open for intiatives and ideas from 'outside' (with other words, from you). <br> Outside the Faculty you should look at <a href="http://www.archined.nl/" target="_blank">Archined</a> (push the 'switch to english' butto...</p>
