Raumlabor | 2018
HOUSE OF TIMEHouse of Time is a long-term project that was launched by the German architectural firm ‘raumlabor’. On an old industrial site along the Ringvaart (canal system surrounding Bruges), the firm went to work with the ‘Bolwerk’ and the ‘Brugge(n)’ organisations for young people. There, they are working on a house full-time, a place that will be reprogrammed and turned into a meeting and production space by and for young people. The microindustry will evolve gradually into an open space for discovery, experimentation and learning. Mobile units such as a warm water bath or a series of benches will be added, but the main focus is on immaterial values: a sense of involvement and commitment to solve problems actively at each stage of the creative process. In order to motivate teenagers to use an urban public space on a permanent basis, raumlabor wishes to break through individualism and enable the local youth to work together as a community to find solutions to their social and community problems via art and architecture.
