Connect Delft with Stylos!
In honour of our 125th Anniversary, we of D.B.S.G. Stylos are organising the project 'Create with Delft'. As study association of the Architecture programme, we want to bring students and citizens of Delft together by collectively building an artwork, made of cardboard!
The French top artist Olivier Grossetête has designed an artwork that we will build together with 150 citizens, companies and educational institutions from Delft by hand using cartboard boxes.
We are close to bridge the budget required for this event but we need you for the last bit! Together we can realize this project on May 9th.
Be the stepping stone to our project and donate or share!
Delft is rich in all its different citizens, companies, organisations, and educational institutions. In spirit of the social nature of the ‘Building with Delft’ project, these different kinds of people have the opportunity to meet and connect during the series of workshops. They can contribute to the artwork by collaboratively making the constructive cardboard parts. Together, we will be working towards the highlight of the week: the construction of the gigantic cardboard artwork. This is how ‘Create with Delft’ brings the local citizens together.
During a series of workshops from May 5-8, each cartboard box will become part of the artwork. The highlight of the week will be the construction of the artwork on May 9th. The day after, on May 10th, the artwork will be deconstructed, after which the boxes will be recycled. You are cordially invited to both festivities to help build the artwork and thereby a stronger bond between the TU and Delft as a city!
For this occasion, Stylos has invited French artist Olivier Grossetête. Olivier Grôssetete is the founder of the social project ‘The Participative Monumental Construction’. He designs humongous cardboard buildings which are being constructed solely by human force and collaboration. The cardboard parts, which the structure consists of, will be made during a series of workshops from the 5th untill the 8th of May in the city. After this, Olivier and his team will supervise the 150 volunteers to construct the massive building.
This year, D.B.S.G. Stylos, the study association of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at the Delft University of Technology is celebrating its 125th anniversary. Stylos is, with over 2000 members, one of the biggest and most active study associations in the Netherlands. It is completely run by students, that work both part-time and full-time to organize a wide range of events, such as a career event called BAU, where students can meet about 40 architectural firms, a music and arts festival called BkBeats, with over 3000 visitors inside the faculty, and a three-week study trip to distant locations such as Japan, India and Mexico.
