Sandberg Instituut – Course ‘The Studio for Immediate Spaces (SIS) investigates space in all its forms and implications. It is an autonomous platform for reflections ranging from commentary and analysis to current spatial realities and production processes. Using the tools of the geographer, the urban planner, the architect or the designer, we create new grounds for research, blurring the boundaries between science and politics, art and architecture, interior and exterior. Through field observation, analysis or physical construction we dig into the spaces created by popular culture and contemporary society to reveal new meanings. Public or intimate, permanent or temporary, material or virtual, we are interested as much in the physical quality of space as in its social and political outcomes.
