MWA+JDS @ NEW MUSEUM NYC

18 November, 2013 at 15:11

KAUFMAN

Makers With Agendas launches its product line in the American market this Friday, the 22nd, at the New Museum in New York City.

On this occasion, the New Museum Store will unveil its new store design, a collaborative effort between JDS Architects and Makers With Agendas.

From the New Museum release:
Makers With Agendas (MWA), cofounded and directed by architect Julien De Smedt and William Ravn with Wouter Dons, is a new design platform with the mission to remove design from aesthetic concerns and towards societal issues. “At Makers with Agendas we’re trying to work with themes and problems rather than just entertain ourselves with a cool design,” says De Smedt. “The culture of making is linked to the culture of curiosity. This bizarre alchemy links curiosity to productivity.” The idea and concept behind MWA emerged out of working together at JDS Architects, De Smedt’s architecture firm based in Brussels, Copenhagen and Shanghai.

MWA launched this fall at Maison Objet in Paris, Design September in Brussels, and will be launched exclusively in the United States at the New Museum. For more information, click here.

THIS MIGHT NOT BE APPROPRIATE EXHIBITION OPENS THIS THURSDAY

16 September, 2013 at 16:16

THIS MIGHT NOT BE APPROPRIATE

‘THIS MIGHT NOT BE APPROPRIATE’
opens this Thursday the 19th of September at 18h00
at the Vanhaerents Galleries

‘THIS MIGHT NOT BE APPROPRIATE’ is an exhibition produced by JDS Architects as a selection of the office work from the last 12 years, at the time when Julien De Smedt initiates a new design capacity: Makers With Agendas. This exhibition con­flates the role of the architect with that of the “maker” – one who actively engages with the culture of manu­facturing and dissemination of designed artifacts in addition to the craft and functionality of our designed environment

Established around the thematic of urban activation the show will unfold our working methods through models, projections, sketches or specifically crafted installations.

The Vanhaerents Galleries consists of a series of exhibition spaces, newly completed by JDS, in the heart of Brussels, at the crossing of the rue de la Senne and the Rue des Fabriques.

JDS/Julien De Smedt Architects
