Parking workshop at maHKU

In February 2011 the maHKU (Utrecht Graduate School of Visual Art and Design) invited space&matter to organize a workshop for the masterclass of the interior design and public space department.
Dutch cities are littered with innumerable parking structures of the lowest architectural standards. Our workshop focuses on these inner city parking garages and specifically on their unused potential of cultural relevance. After analyzing a parking garage on the Jaarbeursplein in Utrecht, participants will develop spatial strategies for exploiting the sociocultural potential of this neglected urban realm.
