The unique Group B'19'20 explored in a four week project the consequences of studying by material making, which has been the Art- and Designpractice up to recent, when approached from the perspective of climate change and the necessary reduction of greenhouse gases.
Each student related to one of the broad range of topics addressed by the DRAWDOWN project (©Peter Hawken, 2018 - ENG/NL) most close to her/his interest.
The issue of how to treat waste in class was the theme most close to daily practice. From there the project spread into different related directions.
Dialogue, training, exploring and awareness of future adaptations may be the most effective point we arrived at :) - an introduction to be elaborated in future practices.
