RE-ST: Wanderspace / Zwerfruimte

Tine Hens, Roel de Ridder, Leo van Broeck, Jee Kast

RE-ST & Nai010, 2020


RE-ST is een Belgische architectuur- en onderzoekspraktijk die naar oplossingen zoekt voor urgente en complexe ruimtelijke vraagstukken. Via hun projecten en onderzoeksprocessen zoeken ze naar kritische inzichten en visies op de bebouwde en open ruimte die ons rest. Dit leidt tot het formuleren van nieuwe uitdagingen en ontwerpopdrachten.

Why do we build more than we need? While open spaces are becoming more and more scarce, we continue to overlook the possibilities of what has already been built. With this publication, RE-ST puts the unnecessary growth of our building stock on the agenda.
Wander space is either built-over or undeveloped space that we have produced together, but underuse on a daily basis. It is space that exists everywhere and nowhere at different levels. Nobody knows exactly how much wander space there is. Detecting, mapping and activating occasional space is a task and an opportunity for the architect. Not to ‘cram houses’ into it, but to work on the redevelopment of what already exists and only build when there is no other option.
