We’re happy to have moved into this exciting year. According to a inspiring group of trend-watchers*) 2012 will be one of creating connections on all possible levels. And we couldn’t agree more…. Last year we’ve been building on the infrastructure for this to happen: we’ve connected with 5 companies of our supply chain into a new place, the Slaak building and expect to mutually profit from each others presence this year.
Similarly excited we are about our new website Cyclifier.org that shows 80 examples of creative urban interventions to (re)establish links between waste-flows and resources for 15 different flow-types. This platform is open to everyone to learn and share about new connecting concepts.
Next to this we’re very glad to work on a variety of projects that will launch this year, all of them creating unexpected but sometimes very logical bonds: a new restaurant called Moes in Amsterdam, a showroom and office for the shoe brand Keen in Rotterdam, a workshop and museum DordtYart in Dordrecht, a self feeding visitor- and business-center called CoCasa in Amsterdam, and we are working on the recycle centre in Maastricht. But we’ll also create the interior for the Manifesta 2012 and work on an built experiment for the Vitra foundation.
We are very thankful for everyone that contributed to our work to grow, and hope the year 2012 will give many opportunities to (re)connect with you.
For everyone that is curious what will happen to our name, we have to keep that a surprise till the 20th of december when we’ll make an announcement. If you would like to make a guess, you can tweet your suggestion @2012Architecten. The most close prediction will receive a suitable gift on December 21st of 2012.
The team of 2012Architecten.
