Lezing: Katherine Clarke – muf architecture/art
iris 10th February 2015

Muf architecture/art onderzoekt de sociale, ruimtelijke en economische aspecten van het publieke domein. Daarbij gaat het bureau aan de slag met wat er al voorhanden is, om op zoek te gaan naar de potenties op de grens van het gebouwde en het “geleefde”. Muf hanteert hierbij een “common ground”, een taal die het bureau tijdens het hele project deelt met de cliënt/gebruiker/bewoner. Het resultaat is altijd een toegankelijke en gedeelde ruimte.

Muf is één van de meest toonaangevende sociaal geëngageerde bureaus van vandaag. Met het Barking Town Centre wonnen ze in 2008 de European Public Space Prize.

English version
Ever since 1994 muf architecture/art researches the social, spatial and economic aspects of the public domain. An important part of this research is unsolicited advice. muf has developed into one of the most prestigious bureaus in the field of spatial agency, a loose conglomerate of spatial practices that effectively tackle existing engagement of others (users, occupants,…).

muf always uses what is already available. Proposals to grapple with an existing situation always emerge from a profound observation of that situation. This means that each assignment is absolutely unique, especially since muf primordially searches for a common ground, a language that the bureau shares during the entire project with the client/user/occupant. muf architecture/art built up an impressive portfolio of non-generic strategies.

The muf approach is always (also) spatial. The bureau seeks out the potential bordering the built on and the ‘lived in’. The result always is an accessible and shared space. By encouraging (diverse) usage, muf acts in function of a ‘sense of ownership’. In this way, durable projects materialize.

muf architecture/art is one of the most trend-setting socially engaged present-day bureaus. Their strategies work. With the Barking Town Centre they won in 2008 the European Public Space Prize.
