If you're in town, OASE Journal for Architecture will present its 96th issue in Bozar, Brussels tomorrow. OASE 96 examines the remarkable revival of designpractices that focus on the questions of use and appropriation in architecture. The essays in this issue proceed from the non-coinciding nature of the ways in which a building is conceived and how it is subsequently used.
By means of case studies and critical reflections on a variety of architectural practices, the authors demonstrate how the use and appropriation of architecture can be part of a socio-poetic process from which architectural meaning may be derived. Between the faith in the autonomy of architecture on the one hand and design practices centred on the user on the other lies a whole range of practices that address the traditional separation between design and use in a productive way. In this issue, the contrast between design and use is not perceived as a problem that needs to be resolved, but as a productive area of tension within which architecture is created.

Thursday, December 15th, 2016, at the occasion of the publication of OASE 96 ‘Social Poetics. The architecture of use and appropriation’, Tobias Armborst (Interborro Partners) and Bert Gellynck (1010 architecture urbanism) will give a double lecture.
The lecture is followed by a discussion with the (guest)editors of OASE 96, Michiel Dehaene, Els Vervloesem en Marleen Goethals. Joachim Declerck (AWB) will moderate the discussion.
OASE 96- Social Poetics
Interboro Partners is a New York city-based architecture, urban design and planning office that specializes in the design of public spaces. Their approach is place-specific and deploys design solutions and participatory processes to create open environments that work for everyone. Their recent projects range from temporary installations in public space to regional development plans. Some recent examples include an art space and sculpture park in Lower Manhattan, a linkeable series of urban furniture as well as a regional resilience plan for Long Islands’ South shore that copes with the issue of floods and storms after Sandy.
1010 [ten-ten] is a design studio for architecture and urbanism, based in Brussels. The office works at the scale of the city and strongly believes in an integral approach of the design process in which the relation between architecture, public space and society is acknowledged. They consider their role to be the one of an author and sometimes also the director, actor and producer.
This double lecture is part of Atelier Brussels – Urban Agenda/Public Programme. In this series Julian Lewis (EAST, UK) will give a lecture on Tuesday 29.11 at Bozar.
