RENSKE MARIA VON DAM, Netherlands
landscape architect I lecturer I researcher
is an architect and creative practice researcher whose work exploits tiny perceptions to open up alternative worlds of experience and action. She disposea of the de-natured "white lab coat" approach to spatial intervention in favor of a hands-on, 'dark, dirty and wild' immersion in and experimentation with the world.
Recently, she has finished her practice-based doctoral research "Working With/In the Gap: Japan-ness in Architecture of Experience" in which architectural habit(at)s that approach space in terms of the architectural object are recast through the lenses of the Japanese "practice of ma (full emptiness)."
