Rietveld Architecture Art-Affordances

Vacancy Studies


Expanding on their expansive installation visualizing the magnitude of the Netherlands’ 10,000 empty government buildings at the 2010 Venice biennale, Ronald and Erik Reitveld of RAAAF partnered with a multidisciplinary team at the Sandberg Institute to explore the concept of design potential within unused spaces in a new book. “Vacancy Studies: Experiments and Strategic Interventions in Architecture” spans possibility and optimism in the practical and satisfying approach architects and designers may take in seizing these opportunities.
