deSERVICEGARAGE hosts: Anticipated Decay - Towards a Grand Ruin

On Thursday 24 and Friday 25 April, first and second year students of the department of Inter-Architecture of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie will present the final step and outcome of the course ‘Material Experimentations’ in an exhibition curated by Marie Ilse Bourlanges and Elena Khurtova.

The theme of ‘Anticipated Decay’ is chosen to raise a crucial question in the fields of Design and Architecture: what ‘use’ may mean outside the restrictions ordinarily set by function and consumption.

During the exhibition, students will present and demonstrate various approaches on how ‘use’ is in fact more than mere ‘utility’.

The variety of projects developed by students is captured in a special publication by graphic design students Miguel Hervás Gómez, Andrada Smaranda and Velislava Dakova. The publication will be presented during the opening.
