departure/MAK d>lab.03 

What if Vienna’s 1st district became a workplace for manufacturing? Imagine an inner city as a campus site, where living, working, and exchange of knowledge come together. How do we expose the potential of a specific site? How can we make new connections between different producers, sellers, services, workers, buyers and consumers? The workshop investigates and indicates all the companies, services etc. and will discover potentials and models of local manufactories.
 
The journey through the project itself is the product of the assignment. The focus will be on research and the determination of qualities. The production line of the process will be reevaluated and more services in the ‘campus’ should be used in the project. Instead of large factories in the city’s periphery bringing their products into the city center, cluttering its roads, the workshop aims to think about small, specialized units spread throughout the city. These units should work together like the services on a campus.
 
The workshop will take place in the exhibition WerkStadt Vienna: Design Engaging the City (12 December 2012 – 17 March 2013), curated by Sophie Lovell and designed by Studio Makkink & Bey.

Studio Makkink & Bey was founded 2002 by architect Rianne Makkink and designer Jurgen Bey in Rotterdam. The studio’s team investigates the various domains of applied art while studying the tension between the private and public domain. Taking a critical stance towards the designing of public space, buildings and interiors, exhibitions and products is pivotal.
