The Designers in Residence Kortrijk 2020-21 are taking over the K-TOTEM!
The 3 young international designers were invited by Designregion Kortrijk to think about "The future of urban leisure".
While doing research on (the region of) Kortrijk, Elena, Jadd and Emelie bumped into a remarkable and fascinating fact. On a map of Kortrijk from 1850, they discovered that there were many little islands in Groot-Kortrijk. Most of them were farms surrounded by water. Many of these farms have now become places of recreation, such as Bar Botaniek, Wildernis, Heerlijkheid van Heule, Hoeve Te Coucx, etc. But there are also a number where nothing has happened at all so far. The 3 designers invite you to think along about the future of these special places for the Kortrijk people. Go to their website eiland.design where they document their research and more.
