TRAVEL

The TRAVEL program is run by Hans Venhuizen. At INSIDE the basis of every design lies in observing, researching and analysing a situation. The best attitude for doing that is to experience a tremendous sense of liberation and, at the same time, to be very aware of all the dangers and limitations that surround you.

…….A strategy that I developed was the strategy of strangeness. That’s a feeling you’ve got when you travel. It’s a very exciting feeling. If you go to a new place, which is very different from the places you’ve been before, and it feels very strange. Suddenly you have a feeling of fear, because you don’t know how to get around, you don’t speak the language, you don’t know the customs…. At the same time you have this tremendous feeling of liberation. This is paradoxical: shrinking back, yet expanding outwards. A kind of fundamental ambiguity. To be free and yet afraid. To protect yourself and also open up. So travelling is something that invokes that feeling.

From an interview with Lebbeus Woods by Jan Jongert (1994)

At INSIDE we aim to foster this state of mind through experiencing the real world in the Travel Programe. We are tempted to think that we know places once we have seen appealing presentations in publications or on the internet. That’s until we really go there. Only by travelling somewhere you can see and feel the real spaces, smell the real odours, and meet the real people. And there is a lot to see and feel everywhere. Newly designed spaces that you only know from renderings in magazines, and places that are on the brink of change. Famous monuments and meaningful places you don’t know yet. Well designed as well as poorly designed spaces. Special and ordinary ones. And spaces that make you reflect on social issues, history, politics and economic situations, or that are simply fascinating in their own right.

Hans Venhuizen takes the students to cities, squares, polders, industrial ruins, architectural highlights, museums and lots of other fascinating places. Students gather impressions, and from that they allow particular phenomena to emerge. Phenomena are more than mere descriptions of a situation. A phenomenon can be anything that reveals the ‘truth’ of a situation, or at least your personal truth about the entire situation, or just a small but essential detail. Phenomena are a tool to frame a situation and accompany you during the process of designing a spatial change.

The Travel Program consists of national and international excursions, symposiums, lectures, interviews and studio visits that stimulate the observation of and research into phenomena in spatial design for at least 14 days every semester.
