UJ _ U N I T 2 2015 – Architecture+Agency
UJ_UNIT2 2015 was a one year teaching experiment in the launch year of the UJ UNIT SYSTEM. However, it was also the culmination of 22 years of experimentation in teaching an approach to design that demands consideration of multiple design decision makers, the interface between people and the built environment and the technical implications thereof. In 1992, at the age of 24, I was introduced to John Habraken’s writings at IHS Rotterdam. This book offers some reflections on this Open Building teaching experiment, its outcomes and possible future. This is done in the light of the #feesmustfall protests and decolonisation debates, as well as in the light of debates on ethics which have permeated much of our work.
