Delft students joined up with Michigan students for a 2-day lecture and design workshop. The collaboration was with Samir Bantal’s studio called “less is more” based on a study of vacancy in Rotterdam and Detroit. His studio met with our group in Ann Arbor weeks before, allowing us to plan this brainstorming and model making exercise. Day 1 had sites in Detroit and day 2 had sites in Rotterdam . Samir’s graduate students had already built elaborate models of Detroit (far model) and Rotterdam (near model) that could use for the event. Athough there was about 5 hours to produce and materialize concepts, the work was surprisingly interesting and students were extremely pleased with the experience.
