We are more than happy to welcome Simon Weisse for a Jour Fixe lecture on December 11th. During this evening he will give us a backstage look at the art of miniature model making for movies. If you share our love for Wes Anderson’s movies such as The Grand Budapest Hotel or Isle of Dogs – then see you Tuesday!

PS: In 2018, Platform MAKE. has been focusing on waste(d) materials including plastic waste (see Precious Plastic Project) and aluminum scrap (see Raw Art Sand Casting). With 2018 going to its end, our theme is going to its end. Inspired by Wes Anderson’s Trash Island, we considered this lecture the perfect–imperfect place to be for you (and us) this December.


Material of the Month: ThermHex Honeycomb Panels

We are excited to demonstrate ThermHex Honeycomb Panels as Material of the Month. These next generation materials have a few promising qualities compared to solid panels (such as wood). The inner honeycomb structure provides the material both lightness and structural stability. The open (airy) structure and translucency of the material goes well in combination with (colored) light. Finally, the whole panel is made of a single polypropylene material, a thermoplastic which is recyclable and easy to (heat) transform.

Kick-Off Workshop this Tuesday: From 13.00 – 18.00 we are exploring its construction-lightness, light-translucency, heat-transformation and gather ideas for joints/connections with other materials. Students from all departments are welcomed to join us in getting hands-on with these ThermHex honeycomb panels.

Get your own (free) material samples for experimentation at the Burg Material collection.

Ever since we started building Dave Hakkens recycling machines (see Wintersession 2018) with a dozen art and design students, Ludwig Stadler has been one of the driving forces in keeping these machines going.

In the context of the New Urban Production (Neue Urbane Produktion) exhibition at HALLE 14, Ludwig and friends will be offering a two-day recycling workshop focused on collecting, sorting, shredding and melting wasted plastics into new application ideas.
